TRI-CITY AREA — There was a steady trickle of voters in and out of their polling places for yesterday's school elections.
In Almont, residents were faced with choosing two candidates among five to sit on the school board: John Miles, Laura Gutenkunst, Steve Hoffa, Chris Krim and Trisha Swantek. Renewal of the 18 mills non-homestead renewal was also on the ballot.
In Capac, Dale Stuever sought to complete the remaining two years of his board term while four others—Gene Sinda, Bill Ellis, Loralee Pillsbury and Peter Frangedakis—wrangled for two, four-year terms. Voters were also asked to approve a Headlee override proposal.
In Dryden, current board members Marti Riley, John Powell and Kent Gierman were seeking re-election. Also up for approval was renewal of the 18 mills non-homestead and a new bond for district-wide improvement.
