Want to be one of the five votes on the Nicolet School Board? Inspired to work in public service (and get paid)?
Thursday marked the first day that potential candidates for Nicolet and other local offices can start circulating nomination papers for the spring election. Papers are due Jan. 3 to get on the ballot. The general election is April 3, but if a primary is needed, it will be held on Feb. 21.
Incumbents who choose not to run must announce that decision by filing a declaration of non-candidacy by Dec. 27.
Here are the seats with the incumbent officials whose seats will be on the ballot:
The seats of School Board President Marilyn Franklin and board member Jennfer Peltz will be on the ballot.
Franklin has filed papers indicating she will seek re-election but Peltz hasn't yet.
The length of term for each position is three years, and members are paid $1,000 annually.

The seats of board members Jane Guffy and Donna Mortara will be on the ballot. Members serve three-year terms and there is no pay.
Voters will be filling the seats now held by trustees Danny Munchin and James Petersen. Munchin has turned in his papers for re-election; Petersen hasn't.
Board members serve three-year terms and are paid $1,200 annually.
The terms of trustees Beverly Bell and F. R. Dengel III will expire in April, as wil the term of Municipal Judge Scott A. Wales. None of them has turned in papers for another term.
