No Competition For Village Council, School Board Seats

Nominating petitions have been filed, and there is no competition for seats on Archbold Village Council or Archbold School Board.

Voters throughout Ohio go to the polls, Tuesday, Nov. 5, for the fall General Election.

All three currently-serving village council members, Jeff Fryman, Kenny Cowell, and Vaughn Bentz, have filed petitions to be on the ballot.

With no other nominees, they are almost assured reelection.

Petitions were due Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 4 pm.

Anyone wishing to seek election to council, or any other position up for election, can run as a write-in candidate.

Write-in candidates must file a declaration of intent to run as a write-in with the Fulton County Board of Elections by Monday, Aug. 26.

On the Archbold School Board, three persons are running for three seats, but there will be a change in the board’s makeup.

Janet Wyse, a board member, is not seeking reelection. She is replaced on the ballot by Roel Galvan, a former board member, who filed a petition for election.

Galvan was first elected to school board in 2006, but was defeated for reelection in 2009. He was unsuccessful in a run for school board in 2011.

Jon Lugbill, board president, and Phil Nofziger have filed petitions for reelection.
