Rugby councilmen Brossart, Schneibel won’t run again
The Rugby City Council will have at least two new faces following the June 8 city election.
Last week council members Steve Brossart, ward one; and Monte Schneibel, ward four, said they would not seek re-election.
“I just have to many irons in the fire in regards to business right now,’ said Brossart, who is completing his first term.
Schneibel said his travel schedule with his business, often taking him out of the country, was the reason he decided not to run.
“The last three years I’ve been traveling more, and fortunately I have been able to make the meetings, but it’s time to let someone else serve.” He has served longer than any current councilman – 15 years.
Ward Two councilman Dave Bednarz and Ward three councilman Bill Hartl, whose terms are up, plan to run again, but as of last week, have not yet filed.
Earlier this winter Rugby Mayor Dale Niewoehner announced he would not seek a third term.
As of last week, just one candidate – John Ford – has filed to run for mayor. It’s reported there are other petitions circulating by candidates for the office.
There are three seats up on the Rugby Park Board as well. Rick Larson, George Dendinger and Ginger Collins currently hold those seats. The terms cover four years.
The deadline to file a petition with the city auditor-administrator to be placed on the ballot for a city elected office is by 4 p.m. on April 9. The election will be June 8.
