Five candidates file Tuesday morning for city council, school board elections
With the deadline approaching, five Baldwin City and USD 348 patrons filed for the April 5 election Tuesday morning.
For the Baldwin City Council race, Shane Starkey and Coy Weege filed, which now brings the race to four candidates. There are three openings on the city council this election. No incumbents will be running for their seat this spring.
In the USD 348 school board election, John Dunbar and Sandy Chapman entered the race for position No. 2. Slade Dillon was the other Tuesday filing. Dillon filed for position No. 3.
Every school board position has at least two candidates running, but no more than three in each position. Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said if positions No. 2 and No. 7 had one more person file, there would have been a primary. Since only three filed for each position, there won't be a primary for the school board or city council.
Shew also said the filings are unofficial until Thursday when names and addresses can be verified.
