Parker School Board election planned;

Sarah Ebeling | Managing Editor

The Parker School District’s school board election has been scheduled for Tuesday, April 14. One three-year term is up for election, currently belonging to Jason Chester. Challenging Chester is Parker resident Jay Sanner. 

Anyone who is a registered voter within the Parker School District is able to vote in this election. Anyone not currently registered, but interested in voting must register by Monday, March 30. 

As for the city of Parker, several council members have terms expiring. Council members Bob Sattler and Amy Chicoine both have one year terms that were up and Roxie Harms, Peggy Berens and Mayor Ron Nelson all have two year terms expiring. Because no challenging petitions were turned in, the city will not host an election. 

City Finance Officer Adam Jans explained that Nelson, Berens and Harms all turned in petitions, but were the only ones in their wards to do so. Sattler did not turn in a petition, but Arne Erickson did, so he will take over for Sattler. Anderson did not turn in a petition and neither did anyone in that ward, so the council will appoint someone.
