Candidate filings for the April 5 municipal election closed at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 28.

Two seats on the Jackson R-2 Board of Education are up for election. They are currently held by Paul Stoner and Brian Thompson. The incumbents have both filed for reelection.

The two school board incumbents are being challenged by two additional candidates, McGraddie “Mac” Robinson and Kristen Lewis.

All of the incumbents on the Jackson Board of Aldermen have filed for reelection. They are Paul Sander, Ward 1; Dave Reiminger, Ward 2; Larry Cunningham, Ward 3; and Joe Bob Baker, Ward 4.

Sander and Reiminger are running unopposed.

Michael Seabaugh has also filed for the Ward 3 seat and Steven Lee has filed for the Ward 4 seat, creating contented elections in those two wards.

In Oak Ridge, only incumbent Mack Armbruster filed for reelection on the Village Board. There is one additional seat open for a write-in candidate.
