Candidates file for school boards

By Staff | Aug 13, 2008

Tuesday, Sept. 9 is another chance for voters to let their voices be heard during the annual school election.

In the Estherville Lincoln Central Community School District, two seats are up for grabs this go-around.

Currently the seats are held by directors Don Schiltz and Mike Karels. Both names are on the ballot and neither has opposition for either of the three-year terms.

In the Armstrong-Ringsted Community School District, director-at-large Marti Kindrick is seeking re-election. Challenging her for the position is Donald Looft.

Emmet County Auditor Bev Juhl noted this particular race is for a one-year term due to the gradual change-over to the newly adopted method of school board elections in the state.

Also seeking re-election in the A-R district for a three-year term is Rod Foster, district 1 director. He is running unopposed.

On the community college level, Janice Lund is seeking re-election as district 2 incumbent on the board of trustees at Iowa Lakes Community College. Challenging her for the three-year position is Bob Grems.

District 2 includes all of Estherville and a portion of eastern Dickinson County

Juhl said all of these candidates met the July 31 deadline for filing nomination papers.

On the day of the school election, voters in Estherville will cast ballots at the Emmet County Courthouse from 7 a.m.-8 p.m.

In Armstrong citizens will vote at the

Community Center and Ringsted ballots will be cast at the Ringsted Library. These two polls will be open from noon-8 p.m.
