Editor’s note: See Pages 8 and 9A for candidate profiles.

When District 777 voters go to the polls Tuesday, Nov. 6, they will find eight residents seeking a seat on the board of education.

Four are seeking a four-year term with three seats up for election. The candidates are Brian Samuelson, Tammy Gunlogson, James Berens, and Paul Carruth. The three candidates getting the more votes will win seats.

Carruth and Gunlogson are incumbents, however, both were appointed to their terms to fill seats following resignations.

There are four people seeking one seat that lasts just two years. Only the top vote getter in this group will win election to the school board. The candidates are: Eric Peterson, Ron A. Hanson, Chad Payne and Jodi DeJong-Hughes. Payne and DeJong-Hughes currently serve on the board and are seeking re-election.

The winners in the November election will join Mary K.W. Langan, Bill McGeary and Gary Williams on the school board in January.
