Election filing period for city, hospital and school board opening August 2

Tue, 07/26/2016 - 12:41pm

It is almost election filing time again. Citizens interested in running for office in the City of Grand Marais, for School District 166 or the North Shore Health board of directors will be able to file as a candidates from August 2 to August 16.

The North Shore Hospital Board will be seeking candidates in District 2 and 4, currently held by Justin Mueller and Kay Olson respectively. Both candidates told the News-Herald that they will be running for re-election.

In the city of Grand Marais, the mayor and two council seats will be on the ballot. Incumbents are Mayor Jay Arrowsmith DeCoux and councilors Tim Kennedy and Tracy Benson. Reached by phone, Tracy Benson told the News-Herald she has not yet decided if she will run for re-election.

Mayor Arrowsmith DeCoux has not yet responded to the News-Herald, but Councilor Tim Kennedy did and he said he is likely to run again. He said there is “a lot of interesting stuff happening.”

“We’re working on the public works garage and updating the city comprehensive plan. I would kind of like to see things through. There is some value in having some continuity,” said Kennedy, adding, “I’m pretty likely to run again, but until filing day happens you never know.”

School District 166 board seats to be on the next ballot are currently held by Terry Collins and Sissy Lunde.

Collins represents District 2, which is the Croftville and Grand Marais East area. Collins was appointed to the school board when Rod Wannebo resigned in March 2011. At that time, Collins said he would likely not seek reelection to the position when it is on the ballot in 2016.

Reached by phone on July 20, Collins said he is not running for re-election.
