SCOTLAND - With nominating petitions filed for Scotland city and school board races, there could be some reshuffling of the town's top positions.

Mayor Curtis Hofer will run for his third consecutive term in the April 11 election, with Victor H. Settje challenging.

And, though Settje will run against the tenured incumbent, he's no stranger to the election process.

In 2016, Settje was narrowly defeated by Randy Thum for a Ward II seat on the Scotland City Council, 31-29.

Hofer was elected in a landslide 2013 election, defeating Zachary Bakke 145-34, and was re-elected in 2015 for a second, two-year term.

Additionally, three, three-year terms are available on the Scotland School Board. The seats held by Tayna Vitek, Rebecca Pedersen and Andrew Rokusek are up for grabs, and each filed nominating petitions to run for re-election. Entering the mix is Damon Mogck, who will try to unseat one of the three incumbents.

There will be a joint city-school election held April 11.
