Filing for school board, city council open until Tuesday

MORRIS - Three familiar faces have filed for the Morris Area School Board, while races for two four-year terms on the Morris City Council remain wide open.

The filing period for both elections continues until Tuesday, Aug. 14.

Brent Fuhrman, Stan Wulf and and Jamie Solvie have all filed for open seats on the Morris Area School Board. There are currently four open seats on the school board.

In the city council election, James Henricks abd Brian Solvie have filed for a two-year term left open by Twig Webster's retirement.

Council members Bill Storck and Matt Carrington both have terms expiring at the end of 2012, but as of Friday the races were still empty.

Candidates interested in running for city council need to specify whether they are filing for one of the open four-year terms or to fill the remaining two years of Webster's term.

Anyone wishing to file for a city elected seat must do so at Morris City Hall. School board filings are to be completed at the Morris Area's district office in the high school. There is a $2 filing fee to file for both city council and school board elections.

The city and school filings are for races in which no primary election is held. Everyone who files will be included on the general election ballot in November.
