Candidates for school board can pick up petitions

By Xiomara Levsen | Jun 27, 2017



Petitions for the upcoming school board election Sept. 12 are now available to people interested in running for the election.

Petitions must have 50 signatures and can be filed from July 10 to Aug. 3, according to Washington County Auditor Dan Widmer. Petitions are available in the auditor’s office or at the local school district office.

Washington School District’s business manager Jeff Dieleman said District 2, District 5 and an at-large position are available in this year’s election.

“District 2 is Dana [McDole’s] and she has picked up papers to run,” Dieleman said.

District 5 Heidi Vittetoe currently holds, he said. She has decided not to run again for school board. At-large school board member Patty Roe has also decided not to run for election again leaving her seat on the board open.

In the Highland Community School District, there are three board seats that will be on the ballot.

District 1, which Rachel Longbine currently holds, is one, said Highland business manager Sue Rich. District 5, held by Laura Temple, and District 3, held by Kevin Engel, are the other two board seats available.

Longbine is the only one who plans to run for re-election, Rich said. Engel and Temple have told Rich they aren’t planning to run for re-election.
