City Council member files for seat on Baldwin school board

January 7, 2011

Robin Bayer, an incumbent member of the Baldwin City Council, filed Thursday morning as a candidate for an at-large seat on the Baldwin City school board. The position now is held by Joshua Mihesuah.

Bayer, 40, owns Tequa Creek Holdings LLC and consults with companies and state governments on software development projects. He lives at 203 Ninth St. and in 2009 was appointed to the city council when Ken Wagner was elected mayor. Bayer’s seat on the city council also will be up for election April 5.

Other board positions, and their current occupants, up for election in April:

• 1, Alison Bauer

• 2, Scott Lauribsen

• 3, Blaine Cone

Baldwin’s school district is divided into six voting districts, and reserves one spot for at-large representation.

A primary would be conducted March 1 only if one or more of the voting districts (or the at-large position) had at least four candidates. Then, voters in the particular district would vote to see which candidates would advance to the general election.
