SYCAMORE – Four incumbents for various seats up for election in Sycamore have filed petitions for candidacy during the first day of the filing period.
Sycamore City Clerk Mary Kalk said there are four seats up for election in 2019 on the City Council, one in each of the city's four wards. She said incumbent Chuck Stowe has filed for the second ward and incumbent Nancy Copple has filed for third ward.
"It's still early," Kalk said. "They have until 5 p.m. Monday [Dec. 17] to file."
Two people filed nominating petitions to run for the three open Sycamore District 427 school board positions, Lynne Kunde with the DeKalb County Clerk's office said. As of 3:30 p.m. Monday, incumbents Kristen Wrenn and Julenne Davey, whose terms end in April , have filed for the positions. Board vice president Steve Nelson's term is also up in April 2019.
Dan Gibble, executive director for the Sycamore Park District, said three people had picked up election packets with filing information, but no one had filed for any of the three open positions on the district's Board of Commissioners as of Monday afternoon. He said President Bill Kroeger's and commissioners Daryl Graves and Ann Tucker's terms are expiring in 2019, and that Tucker had said she will not run for commissioner again.
"So we don't expect her to file any petition," Gibble said.
