Two northern Washington County communities have received notice from candidates to run for elected positions.
There are three open spots on the Wellman City Council up for election. Wellman City Clerk Donna Wade says three incumbents will run again.
Those candidates are Johnny Schwartz, Steve Slaubaugh, and Marc Pennington. Wellman resident Bob Goodrich will also run for a position.
In Kalona, there are two open city council positions, and the mayor’s position is also open. City Clerk Karen Christner says Ken Harrington will run for mayor and incumbent Claudine Miller-Zahradnek and Greg Schmidt are running for the city council positions.
