Lutsen township needs write-in candidates for supervisor, town clerk

One of the first items of business at the Lutsen town meeting on Tuesday, January 21 was the announcement that no one had filed to run for election to the town board. Incumbents Supervisor Marland Hansen said that neither he nor Clerk Silviya Duclos had filed for re-election.

“We need someone to launch a write-in campaign or the town board will have to appoint someone,” said Hansen. “So if you know someone who would be a good supervisor or clerk, ask them to come forward.”

Clerk Duclos said, “It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just that I have too much going on.”

The next Lutsen town meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 18. The board will hold its required audit and budget meeting that evening. The board will review the town financial records and proposed budget at 5:30 p.m, followed by the regular meeting at 7 p.m.
