Nicholas Gilberts, of Prairie du Chien, has decided to run as a write-in candidate for the Prairie du Chien School Board.
In a letter to the Courier Press Sunday, April 2, he explained, “Although my current term on the board expires April of 2018, I would resign off of my current term if I get enough write-in votes. There is currently only one candidate, Kyle Kozelka, on the ballot and there are two open spots. As long as Kyle gets one vote, he is automatically re-elected, but that still leaves one open seat. Normally, I could not run because I am already in a term, but since the person with the most write-in votes will take the second seat, I am eligible, according to state law.”
Gilberts said his new term would be for three years and that he’s chosen to run in this capacity because he would like to follow through on all aspects of the building project additions.
