Lambert takes out petition to run for Mitchell Board of Education
Election scheduled for June 7
MITCHELL — David Lambert has taken out a nominating petition to run for the Mitchell Board of Education, according to officials with the Mitchell School District.
Mitchell School District officials confirmed Thursday that Lambert took out his petition at the school business office. Deb Olson, Tim Moon, Jeff Sand and Terry Aslesen have already taken out and filed nominating petitions to run.
There are two seats on the five-member board up for election in 2022 — the seat currently held by Olson and the one held by Kevin Kenkel, who has stated he would not be seeking another term on the board when his current term expires.
Both seats are at-large bids, meaning those who file nominating petitions will vie for the same two seats, with the two candidates who receive the most votes filling the positions.
The other three seats are currently held by board members Shawn Ruml, Brittni Flood and Matt Christiansen.
All seats on the board are three-year terms.
The filing deadline for nominating petitions is 5 p.m. Tuesday, March 29. Petitions may be taken out and returned at the Mitchell School District business manager’s office.
If necessary, the election for the Mitchell Board of Education will be held Tuesday, June 7.
