One of the three GOP hopefuls for the Osolo Township Board of Trustees has died and Elkhart County Republicans will gather to select a replacement candidate.
The caucus is set for 7 p.m. June 30 at the Osolo Township Trustee office, 25600 C.R. 4, Elkhart. Precinct committeemen in the township district will tab the replacement for Margaret Kuehne, who died June 9.
Kuehne was one of the top three vote-getters for the trustee office in the May 6 primary, which earned her a place on the November ballot. The top three vote-getters in the November vote win election to the board.
Those interested in being selected as the replacement candidate need to file a declaration of candidacy, a CAN-31 form, with Mary Nisly, chairwoman of the Elkhart County Republican Party, and the Elkhart County Clerk’s Office at least 72 hours before the caucus. They must also file a statement of economic interest form, a CAN-12, with the clerk’s office.
Nisly’s address is 67258 Foxmoore Court, Goshen, IN 46526.
