Three Seats Open On Keota Board

Three members of the Keota School Board have seats up for re-election this fall. This is the first time that school elections will be held in November rather than the traditional September timeframe. The move to coincide with city elections is designed to help reduce costs of holding an election by government bodies.

Seats held by current Keota Board President Billie Kindred and directors Jim Tinnes and Andy Conrad will be up this election cycle. All three have indicated they will seek re-election. Seats are open to any resident of the district and is registered to vote.

Nomination papers for the Nov. 5 election are available for pickup and may be returned by Thursday, Sept. 19. Nomination papers must have at least 13 signatures of the Keota District.
