BELOIT - With four seats available on the School District of Beloit Board of Education this spring, incumbents are deciding if they will run again.
As of Monday, no one had taken out candidate papers, according to information from Board of Education Secretary Michelle Shope.
If a person wishes to run for the office of board member, the individual will need to be a qualified elector, submit a campaign registration statement and a declaration of candidacy form on or before 5 p.m. Jan. 7, 2020.
The district also has new candidate packets at the Kolak Education Center, 1500 Fourth St., for anyone wishing to seek a seat on the board. People do not have to go to Kolak to get the forms, as they are also available online, https://www.sdb.k12.wi.us/.
Shope said board member Wendy Sanchez is up for re-election as her three-year term is ending. Sanchez told the Daily News she has not decided yet if she will run.
President Pam Charles is up for re-election as she received a one-year term.
"I have not made a decision yet," Charles said when contacted.
There is also a two-year term open from former board member John Winkelmann's resignation, which is currently being filled by Stephanie Jacobs. Jacobs said she is giving serious consideration to running again.
Jeff Keltt, who is coming to the end of a one-year term as a result of former Vice President David Wilson's resignation, said he hasn't completely decided whether to run yet, although he is leaning toward running.
In the voting process, the top four candidates receiving the highest number of votes will get the four positions. The two highest vote recipients get the three-year terms; the third highest vote recipient receives the two-year term; and the lowest of the top four recipients gets the one-year term.
