Stuart Bartels and John Jutten did not file for the Wauneta-Palisade board of education by last week’s incumbent deadline.

Another local incumbent who did not make last week’s deadline was Vicky Heskett, who serves on the Chase County Hospital District board.

Michael Strand of Wauneta, who represents Subdistrict 1 in Dundy County on the Upper Republican NRD board also did not file by the deadline.

However, incumbent Chase County Commissioner Chuck Vette of Wauneta filed before the deadline. Gary L. Grimes of Wauneta also filed for commissioner.

Now, non-incumbent candidates have just a week in which to file for office, said County Election Commissioner Debbie Clark.

Her office will continue to take filings until 5 p.m. MT on Thursday, March 1, from new candidates.


Later filing deadlines

Several elected positions in the area have later filing deadlines than those in February and March, Clark reminds voters.

Those serving on the Imperial Public Power District board, the Lamar village board, Wauneta village board and the Southwest Public Power District board have a few more months to make decisions, Clark noted.

Incumbents for those positions have a July 16 filing deadline, while new candidates have until Aug. 1.

It was incorrectly noted in a story last week that Wayne Lutz had filed for the SWPP board. While he is an incumbent board member, he had not filed as of last week. He and another area incumbent, Steve Leibbrandt, have the later filing deadline.
