Three Sturtevant trustees up for re-election in April have taken nomination papers, but whether all three will appear on the ballot is a little up in the air.
Carrie Harbach, Jayme Hoffman and Daryl Lynaugh are so far without challengers, but residents interested in running for a village board seat have a little bit of time still to get a nomination packet and collect the required number of signatures.
Lynaugh is the most experienced of the incumbents, having served on the board for six years before losing to Hoffman in 2012 and getting re-elected in 2014. This will be Hoffman’s third term.
Harbach was appointed to the board earlier this year when former Trustee Gary Johnson resigned his seat to move to Steven’s Point. She said Tuesday that despite having a nomination packet she’s not quite sure if she’s going to run.
“I’m on the fence,” she said. “It might not be in the best interest of my family, but we’ll see.”
Candidates have until the first week of January to return their packets to village hall. The general election is April 7.
