Meet Your Candidates Night Set in Schoolcraft

The South County News and the Schoolcraft Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) are co-sponsoring a Schoolcraft school board “Meet Your Candidates” night on Tuesday, October 21, at 6 p.m. in the Schoolcraft Library’s community room.

There are three seats up for election and five candidates who have all promised to be present to answer questions from a moderator and meet the public afterwards for a social hour.

Two of the candidates are incumbents, Kathy Mastenbrook and Jeannette Marshall. Three others running are Ryan Ledlow, Steve Sutton, and Jason Walther. Two long-time members of the school board, David Krum and Skip Fox, chose not to run for the six year term. Returning members not up for re-election are Darby Fetzer, Matt Devoe, and Mike Rochholz, board president.

All the candidates have been involved in the school district in various ways. During the event, there will be an open discussion of how each candidate proposes to take the school district in one direction or another, according to Bobbie VanZile, PTO president. It will be a question and answer session with each person given a set amount of time to give his/her answer. The moderator will be Sue Moore, editor and publisher of the South County News.

The public is encouraged to attend and judge for themselves who is best qualified to lead the school district for the next six years.
