As the deadline to file arrives next Tuesday, there are few contested races for the upcoming April 6 elections in the city of Seymour or for the Seymour R-II Board of Education.
In fact, there’s only one.
That race is in the city’s North Ward as the race for a two-year seat on the Seymour Board of Aldermen features incumbent William Pogue against challenger Darrel “Bub” Wallace.
Wallace filed for the North Ward seat when filing opened late last month.
Pogue filed only a few minutes later.
The only other seat on the city ballot is a two-year seat for South Ward alderman.
Nadine Crisp, completing her second, two-year term of office, is the incumbent.
As of Monday afternoon, she is the only person to file for the position.
For the seven-member Seymour R-II Board of Education, which serves the Seymour R-II School District, there are a pair of three-year seats on this April’s ballot.
The incumbents are Stacy Kleier and Heidi Owens.
Both have filed for their seats.
No other candidate has entered the race.
The filing deadline for the city arrives at 5:30 p.m. next Tuesday afternoon. Candidates must file at Seymour City Hall, located on the northeast corner of the square.
For the school board, the deadline arrives at 5 p.m. next Tuesday. Candidates must file at the district’s administration building, located next to the Seymour Community Library on East Clinton Avenue (Business 60).
