Only two candidates for five council seats
By Erik Buchinger
Former Clintonville Mayor Richard Beggs was the lone person to submit his Declaration of Candidacy for the position.
Current Mayor Lois Bressette decided not to seek re-election, and her first term concludes in April.
The city of Clintonville has five aldermanic seats available for the spring election, but just two people sent in their Declaration of Candidacy paperwork.
The five alderpersons up for re-election include Lance Bagstad, Chuck Manske, Amy Steenbock, Mike Hankins and Mark Doornink.
Bagstad announced in mid-December that he would not seek re-election in District 1.
Manske turned in his paperwork for District 2, and Hankins will seek another term in District 4.
Steenbock from District 3 and Doornink from District 5 did not submit paperwork to continue on the city council.
Five candidates applied for three open seats on the Clintonville School Board.
The three-year term is expiring for Ben Huber, Laurie Vollrath and Jim Dins.
Huber, currently the board president, submitted his paperwork for re-election.
Vollrath was selected to join the board to replace Clyde Tellock, who resigned during the summer. She is seeking re-election.
Dins resigned in November, and the board has been operating as a six-person group since. He will not seek re-election.
Patrick Danforth, Larry Czarnecki and Daryl Schroeder have submitted their Declaration of Candidacy paperwork in addition to Huber and Vollrath.
The spring elections will be held on April 3.
