FILING PERIOD UNDERWAY FOR CANDIDATES
It should be a busy week for candidates filing their petitions to appear on the spring ballot in a variety of races. These include openings on the Kingsbury Park Board, Unit 1 and Unit 2 school boards, along with village trustees in Keyesport, Mulberry Grove, and Pocahontas.
In the park board race, there are four seats open…one of which is a two-year unexpired term. As of 4PM Monday, Shannon McGuire, Tommy Simpson, Doug Bohannon, Tim Sandifer, and William Traylor have all filed for the three four-year seats. Matt Willman has filed for the two-year term.
In Mulberry Grove there are three village trustees seats on the ballot and a two-year unexpired term for village clerk. Incumbent Don Smith has filed his petition for another term as trustee.
WGEL will keep you updated on the candidate filings. The period to file ends Monday February 5th.
