Several people took advantage of the extended filing deadline this week to run for local school, water and fire district boards. Several of the filings took place on Wednesday, the deadline in districts in where an incumbent decided not to seek re-election.
The deadline to file for local boards and councils expired last Friday unless an incumbent didn’t file for re-election. In that case, the filing deadline was extended until 5 p.m. Wednesday. Incumbents were ineligible to file for another term during the extended filing period.
