Voters will have seven candidates from which to choose April 1 to fill four seats on the Racine Unified’s Board of Education.
Candidates had until 5 p.m. Tuesday to turn in their nomination papers to get their name on the ballot.
Four is an unusual number this election because typically there are only three board members up for election each year. But, former BOE member Gretchen Warner resigned last fall and Wally Rendón was appointed to fill her seat but only until the next general election.
Incumbents Pamela Handrow, Melvin Hargrove, and Dennis Wiser are all running to retain their seats, and Rendón is as well. Challengers Thoman Fineran, Henry Perez, and Jacqueline Pinager also turned in packets by the deadline.
