Late filings for election reported
A special three-day election filing period in Grant County turned up two candidates for Bob Rupe’s position 1 seat in the Electric City Council race.
Filing for that position were Birdie Hensley, a former member of the council, and Aaron Derr.
In other filings not reported, Jim Keene filed for a two-year unexpired term on Grant County’s Port District 7. Keene was recently appointed to the position. And commission Chairman Oroville Scharbach filed to return to the board for another six-year term.
None of the three positions open for the Coulee Area Park & Recreation District turned up any interest. No one filed for a two-year unexpired term or for two four-year terms.
In Grand Coulee, no one filed for Councilmember Tim Alling’s position 2 seat on that city council.
