Filing is underway for candidates seeking a place on the ballot in the May 6 city council, hospital board and school board elections.
For those considering a stint in public office, opportunities abound. On the city council, three 2-year terms will expire this year, including those of Mayor Rob Talley and Councilmen Jonathan Frederick and Joe Schaef. On the hospital board, three 2-year terms will expire—those of Cory Cameron, Cory Pittman and Michael Gardiner. On the school board, two 3-year terms will expire—those of Rudy Godino and Randy Walser.
Three-term school trustee Randy Walser has announced that he will not seek another term of office. Newcomer Rick Zenor announced his intent this week to run for the school board, while school trustee Rudy Godino announced his decision to seek re-election.
Filing will continue through Friday, Feb. 17, and can be done in the business offices of each entity during regular business hours.
Both prospective candidates and those opting not to run for re-election are welcome to announce their intentions in The Canadian Record. To do so, either call 806.323.6461 or email the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org (receipt of your email will be confirmed). Candidates for office are encouraged to provide a photograph, or to have a photograph taken at The Record office. There will be no charge for either the announcement or photo.
