C-FC School Board

Seven people filed for three seats up for election on the Cochrane-Fountain City School Board in April. 
Filing for re-election was school board president Jo Ressie and appointed school board members Bonnie Breza and Bryan Madsen. 
Challenging for seats on the board will be Larry Cyrus, Warren Barth, Kalene Engel and former school board member Karen Knospe. 
The field of 7 candidates will be thinned to 6 candidates in a primary election on Feb. 21st. 
All of the three seats up for election are elected by voters from across the district. There are no precincts. 

C-FC Superintendent Tom Hiebert said election laws clarified by district legal counsel reversed a plan to allow candidates to file for either 2-year or 3-year terms. 
Madsen's appointment runs until April when the remaining two years of Callahan's term will be on the ballot for election.
