Few candidates file for township office

This article submitted by Linda Stelling on 2/9/00.

Filings for township office closed on Feb. 1. The township elections and the annual meetings will be held on Tuesday, March 14.

The only races appear to be in Irving Township where Harlow Olson and Wayne OĠDell have filed for the supervisor position and Munson Township where Daniel Holthaus and Kay Cook have also filed for the supervisor position.

Two township incumbents did not file for another term but newcomers have filed. In Eden Lake Township, Ralph Hennen filed for supervisor, and in Lake Henry Township, Matt Hemmesch filed for supervisor.

One supervisor in each township, and all the township clerks are up for election this year.
