Printer-friendly version

Four area residents will run for three Board of Education seats, school district clerk Cheryl Janssen announced this week.

Board president Bob Green will run unopposed in Area II, while incumbents Annette Ashley and Paul Kinne, along with Katherine McCallum, will vie for two seats in Area IV.

Nomination papers and a declaration of candidacy were due by Jan. 7 in order to be placed on the ballot. 

The general election will take place on Tuesday, April 7. 

Area II includes the Village of Cross Plains. Area IV includes the City of Middleton, the Town of Westport, and portions of the Town of Middleton.

Each year, three Board of Education seats are up for election. Residents are able to vote for each of the Board of Education seats, rather than only the one from their area. Board members are scheduled to begin their duties at the regular meeting on Monday, April 27.

The MCPASD Board of Education consists of nine citizens from specific geographic areas of the District, who serve a term of three years and/or until their successors are elected and qualified. Terms are arranged so that three new seats are open for election each year. Board of Education members are selected from specific geographic areas, but represent the District as a whole.
