School board candidates

• Nitaya Jandragholica.

• Richard Bergstrom.

• Julie Farnsworth.

• Eugene Groby.

• Robin Krueger.

• Jeff Ollman.

• Aaron DeVries.

• Lisa Peters.

• Robert Vilt.

In a flurry of last-minute applications Friday, nine people applied for Curt Rude's school board seat on the final day to file.

Until then, there had only been one application for the post that was vacated when the Austin School Board removed Rude in March because of concerns over a conflict of interest involving Rude's civil defamation lawsuit against the district's former superintendent and the board.

The district's Personnel Committee, which is board chairman Dick Lees, former chairman Don Fox and the board's new treasurer, Jeff Kritzer, will review the applications Monday afternoon and select four finalists from the group.

Those four people will come before the entire school board at a special meeting on July 20, at which time the board will choose a successor to Rude.

District staff said Friday that the school board may appoint a new board member by the end of July. The appointee will finish Rude's term, which ends in December 2011.
