BREAKING: Mt. Lake Public district elects three to board

Voters in the Mt. Lake Public school district have elected three candidates to the school board.

Only two candidates filed for the three open four-year seats on the board. Incumbent Audi Nickel received 117 votes. Incumbent Matt Gohr received 112 votes.

The third open seat on the board was determined by a write-in vote. According to Mt. Lake Board Chairman Chad Pedersen, Chad Eken officially was the top write-in vote-getter, receiving 37 votes.

The results of the election will be canvassed at a special meeting this week. It will also be determined if Eken, as a write-in vote winner, will accept a position on the board. If he does not, the board has the option of appointing a person to the board to serve until the next election cycle, which would come in 2022.
