Five candidates running for three seats on the Racine Unified School Board

Update 2: John Leiber just filed to run for School Board. That makes five candidates for three slots. Two more and Unified may have a primary! Leiber, 31, ran for School Board last year. He made it through the primary, but finished in the bottom tier during the general election.

Update: Stella Young, of Racine, a former member of the RUSD school board, filed her papers today to run for the board again. That makes fourcandidates for three seats on the board, and ensures a healthy debate leading up the April election. Young sought an appointment to the School Board in 2007 that went to Pastor Melvin Hargrove.

Original post: There are no contested seats for the Racine Unified School Board with less than two hours to go before the filing deadline.

Incumbents Gretchen Warner and Don Nielsen are running again, and former State Sen. Kim Plache has filed papers. Since Tony Baumgardt is not running for re-election, there now are three candidates for three open seats on the board.
