Forum set today for Lindbergh candidates

A forum for the six candidates seeking three seats on the Lindbergh Board of Education will take place at 7 p.m. today — March 10 — in the boardroom at the district’s Early Childhood Education center, 4814 S. Lindbergh Blvd.

Board of Education President Ken Fey will moderate the forum.

Seats held by board Secretary Kathleen Kienstra, board Treasurer Mark Rudoff and board member Don Bee that carry three-year terms will be up for election.

Also up for election will be a seat vacated earlier this year by Janine Fabick that will carry a one-year term. Larry McIntosh currently is serving in the seat.

Kienstra and Bee have filed for the seats that carry three-year terms. Also filing for those seats are: Vicki Lorenz Englund, Joseph Sartorius, Leslie Weiss and George Rezabek.

Rudoff filed for the seat that carries a one-year term.

Missouri law states no school-board election will take place in a district if the number of candidates who file is equal to the number of board seats to be filled by the election. Because he is the only candidate to file for the seat that carries a one-year term, Rudoff’s name will not appear on the ballot.
