Winona School Board filing deadline ends Friday
WINONA — The deadline to file for a seat on the Winona Area Public Schools school board ends at 4 p.m. Friday.
The district had not properly advertised its filing period due to an administrative oversight. School Board Member Jay Kohner said a change in the district required it to hold a filing deadline to accommodate the August primary. There would need to be more than two candidates filing for a single position on the board to trigger a primary runoff.
Four candidates filed for the five openings on the Winona School Board during the filing period that ended May 31. Allison Quam filed for Position 3, Karl Sonneman filed for Position 4, and Kenneth Kersting and Tina Lehnertz, the incumbent, filed for Position 5.
Since the extension began Monday, Karen Coleman has filed for the Position 2 spot, and Jeanne Nelson filed for the Position 4 race against Sonneman.
