Posted at 5:13 — Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew announced two more filings late Monday afternoon. Shawn Nelson filed for USD 348 School Board position 1.

Kenneth Hayes filed for Baldwin City City Council. He became the second resident to file after Jason Mock filed last week.

Ed Kite filed for the school board position No. 2, which is held by Scott Lauridsen. Kite filed last week.

Posted at 3:11 — Joshua Mihesuah filed for re-election Monday afternoon. Mihesuah holds the USD 348 Board of Education at-large position.

The deadline to file is noon Tuesday at the County Clerk's office in Lawrence. The fee is $5 to file for the school board or Baldwin City Council.

Mihesuah is now the fifth USD 348 patron to file for the school board election. Robin Bayer and Tony Wedel have also filed for the at-large position on the school board.

Chad Christie filed for position No. 3, which is held by Blaine Cone. Nick Harris filed for position No. 1, which is held by Alison Bauer.

Scott Lauridsen's position No. 2 is also up for election on April 5.

There has been only one person file for the city council election. Jason Mock filed last week. There will be three city council seats up for election this spring. They are currently held by Ted Brecheisen, Mike Magers and Bayer.

If more than three candidates file for any of the board positions, there will be a primary March 1. A primary on the same date will be required for the city council if more than nine candidates file for the three council positions.

Thanks Robin! I've been receiving emails from the county clerk's office about filings, but I didn't get one about Ed Kite.
