In Orrick’s race for two school board seats, incumbents Tim Twyman and Art Endsley both announced they would seek re-election.
Richmond’s school board also has two school board seats up for grabs. Incumbent Chris Minnick has filed to seek re-election, while the other incumbent, Steve Rittmiller, has not yet filed. Minnick will be challenged by candidates Larry Maxwell, Jeffrey “Tof” McWilliams and Billy Gaines.
Hardin’s race for two aldermen seats currently includes incumbent Mayor Pro Tem Colin Chang and alderman Randy Estenbaum and challenger Vicki Johnson.
Rayville’s election to fill four out of its five Board of Trustees positions had no challengers as of Tuesday afternoon.
In Richmond last week, incumbent Ward II and III Councilmen Dave Powell and Jim Dunwoodie both filed to keep their seats. Former councilman Chris Keen announced he would run for the Ward I seat occupied by Tom Williams, who as of Tuesday had not yet filed to run.
Ward IV Councilman Jason Berning announced in October he would not seek re-election when his term ends in April. The race for his seat currently includes no challengers.
