Primary needed for Eau Claire School Board; uncontested Altoona race
Eau Claire School Board election
The filing deadline to run in the 2022 Spring Non-Partisan Elections has just passed. Some of the seats on the ballot include those for the Eau Claire and Altoona School Board. The Eau Claire School Board is composed of 7 members who are elected for a 3-year term. Of those members they select a President, Vice President, Clerk of Governance Officer, and a Treasurer. The terms for the School Board are staggered such that some of the seats are up for election each year.
Seats for the Eau Claire School Board will be contested. Seven candidates have filed to run for the three open seats, which means there will be a primary for this race on Feb. 15th to narrow it down to six candidates. The candidates include:
The longest serving school board member Aaron Harder has filed a declaration of non-candidacy and will not be running again.
Altoona School Board election
The Altoona School Board is composed of 5 members who are elected for a 3-year term and of those members they select a President, Vice President, Clerk, and Treasurer (similar to the Eau Claire School Board). The terms are staggered so some seats are up for elections each year.
There are three seats open for the Altoona School Board and three people will be running. The candidates include:
Board vice president Dan Gluch and board treasurer David Rowe will not be seeking reelection this spring.
The spring election will be on April 5th. Go to myvote.wi for more information on how to register to vote and where to vote.
