Township candidates to file in January

Filing for candidacy opens Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019 and runs through Tuesday, Jan. 15 for local township officials being elected at the annual town meetings on March 12, 2019.

There is a $2 filing fee, payable at the time of filing.

Candidate filings are encouraged because, as Pine Point Town Clerk Gertrude Maninga said about being a rural township official, "It's a 'till death do you part' job."
