Four County Board districts have races; one has no candidates

Three candidates have filed for one seat on the Pierce County Board, triggering a February primary election. There will also be races for three other seats during the Tuesday, April 6, general election.

When the filing deadlines passed, there was just one seat--in the River Falls area--with no candidate.

The primary will be in District 8, where Thomas Sitz, N8739 CTH W, River Falls, and Katie Pata, W9252 800th Ave., River Falls, are challenging incumbent John Kucinski. District 8 includes Wards 1 and 2 of the Town of River Falls and Ward 2 of the Town of Martell. Kucinski has represented the district since April 2002.

There will be no candidates on the ballot for the District 7 seat now held by Ron Lockwood. District 7 includes Wards 6 and 7 of the City of River Falls.
