Northfielders have less than two months to decide which four candidates they'd like to see on the Northfield School Board.
Patch has compiled basic biographical information about this year's five school board candidates. Click on their names for more information.
Candidates are :
- Dan Cupersmith
- Rob Hardy
- Ellen Iverson (incumbent)
- Anne Maple (incumbent)
- Noel Stratmoen (incumbent)
In the coming weeks Northfield Patch will bring you continued coverage of the school board race and the candidates.
All seats up for grabs this year are four-year terms.
Jeff Quinnell, whose school board term ends this year, didn't file for re-election because he has entered the race for Rice County District 2 Commissioner against incumbent Galen Malecha.
In 2010, five candidates ran for three four-year terms on the school board. Stratmoen ran unopposed that year for a two-year term on the board. In 2008, eight candidates ran for four four-year terms. In 2006, three candidates ran for three four-year terms.
In addition to our coverage of all the races, Patch encourages you to visit the Northfield News, Northfield.org, Locally Grown Northfield and listen to KYMN Radio to get a more complete picture of this year's races—school board and otherwise. No one outlet will cover it all, so it's important to seek out as much information as possible to be as informed as you can before heading to the polls on Nov. 6.
Also be sure to visit candidates' websites, find them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. Now more than ever candidates are finding new ways to share information about themselves.
