Elkhart County Republicans will hold a night of caucuses to fill two vacant Baugo Township positions.
The Baugo Township Board needs to fill one replacement seat and one as a ballot vacancy.
The caucus will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 26, to fill the ballot vacancy. Another caucus will be that same evening at 7 to fill the seat of Donna Graves, who resigned due to moving out of township lines. Both caucuses will be at the Baugo Township Fire Station, 57955 C.R. 3, Elkhart.
Those who are chosen to fill the replacement positions will serve from June 30 to Dec. 31. They can also be placed on the ballot (voted on in November) for the same position next year. Those who are chosen for the ballot vacancies will be voted on by the public in November elections and will serve in 2015.
Interested parties should submit their name for consideration to Mary Nisly, chairwoman of the Republican Party Committee for Elkhart at least 72 hours before each caucus. Candidates should also send a written declaration of interest to Nisly’s address, 27658 Foxmoore Court, Goshen, IN 46526, and must also stop by the County Clerk’s office at the courthouse to fill out the necessary paperwork. Mary also can be contacted via email with questions.
