SUPERIOR — Three candidates will vie for two seats on the Superior School Board this spring.

Following an extended deadline of Friday, Jan. 6, nomination papers were turned in by incumbent Steve Olson, who is finishing his first three-year term, and newcomers Nick Schumacher and Shawnu Ksicinski. Incumbent Laura Gapske will not seek reelection.

Two candidates have turned in nomination papers for the two open seats on the Solon Springs School Board: Ben Kidder and John Swanberg. Incumbents Angela Botner and Ryan Smith resigned their seats in 2022.

That leaves Maple as the only Douglas County school district where a primary election will be held Feb. 21.

There are eight candidates competing for three seats on the Maple School Board, but only six can move on to the April 4 spring election. The candidates seeking seats on the board are Katherine Brunette of Amnicon, Daniel Cowley of Lake Nebagamon, Daniel Diamon of Poplar, Vince Hursh of Maple, Chris Jarman of Hawthorne, Jay Johnson of Poplar, Steven P. Probst of Iron River and James Streveler of Cloverland.
