January 5 at 5 p.m. is last chance for oical
Are you into public affairs? Do you attend local meetings or read about them only to come away thinking, ‘I should get more involved’, or else ‘I could do better’?
If either of those two phrases describes you, there's still time to file for a spring ballot candi dacy, with papers available to pick and return to the local government through January 5 at 5 p.m.
“No I have not had anybody,” Clerk Sandi Isaacs said at Boyd regarding non-incumbent of- ficial open seat at Boyd. With Casey Dorn the only one taking out candidacy papers for a seat.
That could have consequences, unless someone steps up.
“If we had two missing we wouldn’t have quorum,” Isaacs said of the consequences of being short one trustee. Incentives to run are reported to include knowing what’s going on, making improvements to the community, and on the job experience. With three of five members needed to conduct business, a spot its open on the Boyd Village Board—but don’t leave out Stanley!
“Not yet,” Clerk Nicole Thiel reported be- fore the tornado hit, and confriming the same as of Monday. Only the incumbents and taken out papers. With Mayor Haas, Mark Fitzsimmons, Kevin Hendrickson, Mike Henke, and Holly Kitchell all up for reelection, the opportunity to run a contested race for city governement is still possible, so long as papers are returned.
All terms for City Council and Village Board are two years, with terms beginning April 19, 2022—maybe you?
