The deadline for filing for area city offices and school board seats is less than a week away.
By noon Tuesday, only one candidate had filed for office in Perham.
In Ottertail, two filings have already come in--including current City Councilman Terry Wagenman. But, instead of seeking re-election to his city council seat, Wagenman has thrown his hat into the ring for mayor--which is a two-year seat. The current mayor is Raymond "Ole" Mounts.
There are two Ottertail council seats on the ballot--those held by Jeff Spanswick and Donald Patrick. One filing was in by Tuesday: Mike Windy, a seasonal resident who now lives full time in Ottertail.
The one candidate who has filed in Perham is Anita Mycke, who will seek re-election for her four-year council seat.
There are three seats on the ballot for the Perham City Council.
The filing deadline is 5 p.m., Sept. 9, at city hall.
On the city ballot will be the two-year seat held by Mayor Kevin Keil, and the city council seats of Anita Mycke and Jim Johnson.
September 9 is the deadline which is the same for the other cities in the area, including Richville, Dent, Vergas, and Ottertail.
There are three seats on the Perham-Dent school board ballot, and it appears there will be at least two new faces on the board--since incumbents Dan Nodsle and Bridgit Pankonin both indicated they would not seek re-election.
There were no filings for the three school board offices when this edition of the Enterprise Bulletin went to press.
As of Tuesday, incumbent school board member Arnie Thompson had not filed.
Candidates are urged to step forward. The deadline is 5 p.m., Sept. 9. Candidates can file at the Perham school district offices.
