(Neb)-Chadron Mayor Not Seeking City Council Reelection Listen
CHADRON - Chadron will have at least one new city council member next year. Mayor John Coates told his colleagues at the end of Monday night's meeting that he would not seek a second term, looking to join his wife in spending more time traveling and visiting with grandchildren.
The two other council members up for reelection, Mark Werner and Miles Bannan, have not said if they intend to run again.
Chadron school board member Tom Menke has filed for another term, but neither of the other incumbents with expiring terms, Jim O'Rourke and Sandy Roes, has said if they plan to seek reelection. Roes is the longest-serving of the 6 school board members.
No non-incumbents have yet to file for either the school board or city council while Mayor Dave Nixon remains the only person to file so far for either the Crawford city council or school board.
The only incumbent county official not to have filed to run yet, Treasurer Chelsie Sparks, says she's decided against running for a full 4-year term.
Sparks was appointed at the end of August to serve the remaining 16 months of the term of Barb Sebesta, who resigned after pleading guilty to official misconduct. She said at the time she planned to seek a full term and has a little more than a month to file if she changes her mind again.
