All of the incumbents have thrown their hats in the ring for Mansfield’s local elections, and, so far, they don’t have any competition.
Courtney Wilson, 43, who owns a local fitness center, filed Friday for re-election for her second three-year term in Place 7 on the Mansfield school board. Wilson said her priority remains the children in the district.
“I would like to see through some of the things we have put into place during my time in office, the use of iPads for teaching strategies, construction and security,” she said.
Local police officer, Danny Baas, 42, filed for a second term in the Place 6 spot the first week applications were accepted.
Area business owners Wendy Burgess, 43, and Larry Broseh, 59, have also filed for re-election to the Place 6 and Place 7 seats on the Mansfield City Council. Burgess is seeking a second three-year term, while Broseh is looking for a fifth term.
If no other candidates file, both May 10 elections would be canceled, and the incumbents would be sworn in again. Deadline to file for the City Council or Mansfield school board race is 5 p.m. Feb. 28.
City Council hopefuls can file for the two available seats on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at City Hall, 1200 E. Broad St. Packets of election-filing documents for candidates are available in the city secretary’s office.
Mansfield school board candidates can pick up application packets between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. from board of trustees secretary Julie Moye at the school administration building, 605 E. Broad St.
