There will be a sports boosters meeting on Tuesday July 15 at 6:00 pm.
Buckley Community Schools has six seats up this fall. The district has four regular seats up and two seats with expiration dates in 2016. The election will fall on Tuesday, November 4. Forms can be picked up at the school office but must be turned in to the County Clerk’s Office.
Anyone interested in running for school board positions must file an Affidavit of Identity and either circulate petitions or pay a filing fee of $100. Either one of these must be received by the County Clerk’s Office on or before July 22, 2014, at 4 p.m. If you circulate petitions you must collect between 6–20 signatures from qualified and registered electors within your district and the County Clerk’s Office will only certify the required amount. Remember that petitions are exclusive to each township/city within the school district.
Each candidate must complete an Affidavit of Identity along with their circulated petitions or their $100 filing fee. For those candidates that may spend or receive more than $1000 in campaign funds, you must complete a “Statement of Organization” and keep track of all your expenses and revenues. Further reporting requirements must be met by the candidate and the County Clerk’s Office has the correct forms and instructions.
Please call the County Clerk, Elaine L. Richardson, at (231) 779–9450, if you have any questions.
You can download the forms below, but please note that the nominating petition form is actually a legal sized document and must be filled out on a legal sized sheet.
