We do not yet have information on the candidates for School District of the Menomonie Area board, though all 3 of the incumbents in seats that are up for election are not running for re-election. Names will be drawn on Friday January 5 at 9 AM in the Administrative Service Center at 215 Pine Avenue E. We will know the names of the candidates at that time. Only three candidates have completed papers for their candidacy so the three seats will be uncontested.
