From the press release:

Nominating petitions are now available for four seats that are up for election on the Missoula County Public Schools’ Board of Trustees. The election will be held on Tuesday, May 5.

Petitions can be obtained from Pat McHugh, director of business services, at the District’s Business Building, 915 South Avenue W., in Missoula. The Building is open at 7:30 a.m. Petitions should be returned to the District by 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 26.

The terms of four trustees will expire in May; two positions represent the elementary and high school districts on the Board, and two positions represent only the high school district.

Joseph F. Knapp, Jr. and Nancy L. Pickhardt currently hold the expiring elementary seats on the board. Anyone interested in these positions must live within the MCPS Elementary District boundary. Knapp was appointed by trustees on March 5 to assume a vacant trustee seat which had been filled by Jenda Hemphill, a longtime trustee who resigned because of health concerns.

James H. Sadler currently holds the expiring high school district seat that represents the Target Range and Bonner school districts, and Rick Johns holds the expiring high school district seat that represents Hellgate Elementary District on the MCPS Board.

Here is a list of the current trustees along with their terms and expirations.

Over at Missoula Red Tape, Keila Szpaller hints that Missoula Councilman John Hendickson might make a run for mayor.

Please, please let it be true. We’ve posted on Ward Two’s Councilor a few times here, here and here, for starters.

I can’t think of a more divisive, thoughtless, regressive and downright mean-spirited member on city council. This would be a cakewalk for sitting Mayor Engen.

Szpaller notes that Hendrickson did refile for his old ward seat and may actually be happy in that position. So if he’s not running for mayor, I’m praying someone will take him on in Ward Two. They’d be doing that ward and the city a huge favor.

The municipal primary election is Tuesday, Sept. 8 and the general election is Tuesday, Nov. 3. It may seem early to talk about local elections but before you know it, they’re upon us.

Articles – news, blog, and even radio reports and emails – that don’t mention the bill numbers on legislation that is the topic of discussion.

I’m betting there are probably 40+ bills regarding renewable energy in some capacity or another.

I see this all the time.
