One candidate has dropped out and two others have filed to seek seats on the Gardner City Council. There are now four candidates – Randy Gregorcyk, Lee Moore, Brett Limer and Tory Roberts — for three available seats.
Steve McNeer has withdrawn from the race.
There is also another candidate, Darius Crist, for Edgerton City Council, bringing the total of candidates to three for three seats. Other candidates include Keith Buntemeyer and Cliff Withrow.
Incumbent Floyd Koder is the sole person to file for election for Spring Hill City Council. There are now seven candidates for five seats on the USD 231 school board. They include Karen Casey and Greg Chapman, who vie for position 2; Tresa Boden, who is currently running unopposed for position 3; Mary Nelson, also currently running unopposed for the two-year remainder of the position 4 term; and Shaun Henderson and Robin Strentz, who vie for the at-large position on the board. To date, no one has filed to run for position 1.
Only two people have filed to run for four available seats on the Spring Hill USD 230 Board of Education. Those filed include incumbents Nels Anderson and Douglas Updike. No one has filed to run for position 1 or the at-large seat.
The filing deadline is noon on Jan. 27. That is also the deadline for USD 231 voters to return ballots for a mail-in election. The ballots ask voters to approve increased local option budget (LOB) tax authority for the school board.
If there are more than three candidates for any one seat, a primary will be on March 3. The general election will be on April 7.
