Another pair of nominating petitions to run for the Mitchell Board of Education this year have been taken out.
Debbie Emme, Mitchell, and Dwight Stadler, Mitchell, took out the petitions Thursday. There are two seats on the five-member board up for election in 2021 - the seat held currently by Lacey Musick and the seat held by Neil Putnam.
Musick has also taken out a petition to run for the board of education earlier this week. Shawn Ruml, Mitchell, took out and filed a nominating petition. He is the first to file his petition with the school business manager’s office.
Both seats are at-large bids, meaning those who file nominating petitions will vie for the same two seats, with the two candidates receiving the most votes filling the positions.
The filing deadline for nominating petitions is 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 30. Petitions may be taken out at the school business manager’s office.
If necessary, the 2021 Mitchell Board of Education election will take place Tuesday, June 8.
