Cass County Republican Party Chair David Wiederstein has announced delegates to the County Convention for Atlantic Wards 2 and 3 convened Monday night (Sept. 19th), to select a Republican nominee to appear on the November 8th Special Election ballot for the District 2 position on the Cass County Board of Supervisors. The seat was left vacant by the recent death of Supervisor Chuck Kinen. Nominated by convention was Atlantic resident Gaylord Schelling. Cass County Auditor Dale Sunderman reported late Tuesday afternoon, that Jeff J. Richter had also been nominated by petition, for the seat.

Sunderman said earlier this month, that while the County Republican and Democratic Conventions may select their own candidates for the seat, the nomination is also open to all interested persons who are residents of Cass County, who file a nomination petition by 5-p.m. Friday, September 23rd.
