Interesting school board election takes shape here
The five candidates for three seats on the Antigo school board agree more than dissent on major school issues.
That was the conclusion followed an hour-long forum held Thursday evening at the high school’s Volm Theater.
Three seats are open on the board of education and at least one new member is assured with the decision of Gary Jaje not to seek re-election. Incumbents are Mike Boldig, who currently serves as president, and Jeanne Long, elected in 2014 to fill a one-year vacancy. Challengers are also familiar, and include former board member Andy Merry, Karin Koeppel, who finished fifth in balloting in 2014, and Tom Zatloukal, who has never sought a seat but who has been active for decades in school affairs.
