McKibbin to run unopposed for Eagle mayor on April 5
February 3, 2016
EAGLE — Eagle's current mayor pro tem will run unopposed for mayor in this spring's municipal election, while five candidates will vie for the four open town board seats.
Anne McKibbin was the only person to turn in a petition by the deadline at 5 p.m. Monday to run for mayor in the April 5 election. She has served on the Town Board for four years and is a former member of the Eagle Planning and Zoning Commission. Incumbent Mayor Yuri Kostick announced earlier this month that he would not seek re-election.
The Eagle Town Board race is a different story. One incumbent — Kevin Brubeck — will be seeking re-election. He was appointed to the post two years ago when former member Joe Knabel resigned. Like Brubeck, current members Sarah Baker and Geoff Grimmer were appointed to the board when elected members resigned, but neither one turned in a petition by the Monday deadline to run in the spring election.
In addition to Brubeck, the candidates for the four Town Board seats are Max Schmidt, Matt Solomon, William "Pappy" Kerst and Paul Wit.
Three candidates — James Harrison, Donna Spinelli and Candis Wilhoit initially turned in nomination petitions but subsequently withdrew from the race.
