Battles Set For School Elections

Glasgow, Hinsdale, Nashua: Each Has Four Candidates Going For Two Board Seats


As the school year is coming closer to a close, schools are getting ready for their upcoming elections. School elections will be held on Tuesday, May 6.

Nashua has two Board of Trustees positions on the ballot. Incumbents Joe Laumeyer and Ryan Williams will be running against newcomers Joel Novak and Ray Yoss. Williams has been a board member since 2008 and Laumeyer has been on the board for one term, since 2012. The positions are three-year terms.

Hinsdale will also have two Board of Trustee, three-year positions, up for the vote. Incumbents Keith Beil and Mike Jones will be up against newcomers Stacy Hardman and Kay Fjeld. There will also be a resolution for a mill levy for maintenance and operations of the school for the 2014-15 school year.

Opheim school possibly won’t have an election, depending on if they receive a write-in candidate for two Board of Trustee positions that are also open for three-year terms. Incumbents Justin Fuhrmann and Alice Redfield have filed for their current seats on the board and currently aren’t facing any opposition.

Frazer will not be voting on Board of Trustees. Two incumbents, Yancey Veston and Dorian Talks Different filed for their positions and faced no opposition. The school will have a mill levy on the ballot for the operation and maintenance of the elementary school for the amount of $35,904.03.

Lustre school will most likely not hold an election. With only one Board of Trustee position up this year for another three-year term, incumbent Landon Olfert has filed for this year with no one in opposition. If they receive no write-ins they will cancel the school election.

Glasgow will have an election for two three-year terms that are up for David Irving’s and Patt Etchart’s positions. Both Irving and Etchart filed for their positions. John Daggett filed to be added to that ballot, and more recently so did Suzanne Billingsley. Glasgow voters also will decide on a general fund levy for maintenance and operations that would raise an additional $54,000 for the $6.1 million budget.
