Three seats are up for grabs in Mount Pleasant for the general election in April, and all three incumbents are running to retain their seats.
Trustees Jerry Garski, Gary Feest and Don Schulz will appear on the ballot. Garski and Feest were elected in 2010, and Schulz was appointed to the board in April to fill Trustee Harry Manning’s seat after he passed away.
“Oh, absolutely I’m running,” Schulz told Racine County Eye. “There’s no question of that so we’ll see how it shakes out after we find out who else is running.”
Candidates for village board have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to return their nomination papers to the village hall. If there are seven or more candidates, the village will hold a primary in February to narrow the field to six.
The general election is April 8.
