Seven people have filed to run for the Iowa City Community School District board but none of the incumbents for the three open seats.

A fourth, two-year term is also open on the board after LaTasha DeLoach resigned last month.

Thursday was the last day candidates could file their nomination papers.

J.P. Claussen, Janet Godwin, Ruthina Malone, Laura Westemeyer, and Karen Woltman are all running for the three full terms on the board. Charlie Eastham and Shawn Eyestone will contend for the two-year term.

With no incumbents, the board will see another large turnover in membership, including losing two-term president Chris Lynch.

In Clear Creek Amana, three people are running for the open at-large seat: incumbent Eileen Schmidt, Kathy Swenka, and Shawn Zierke. In District 2, incumbent Bob Broghammer is being challenged by Scott Rohret while Nikki Knapp was the only candidate to file for the District 4 race.

And in Solon, there are four candidates for three at-large seats: incumbent Tim Brown, Dan Coons, Rick Jedlicka, and Nicole Pizzini.

Voters in the Lone Tree Community School District will have three choices for the three open spots on the board: incumbents Christina Magruder and Michael Waldschmidt and newcomer Josh Zaruba.

The Sept. 12 election also features two bond referendums: a divisive and record-setting $191.5 million bond in the ICCSD and a $36 million bond in the CCA district. Each needs at least 60 percent approval to pass.
