Chickasaw County, IA – It may not be a presidential election year but locally, elections will be taking place on Nov. 7.
Some Chickasaw County towns have elections with no contest, but Nashua and New Hampton will have plenty to vote on come election day.
In New Hampton, councilmen Scott Perkins and Bruce Diiro are running unopposed. The at-large seat will see some contest as Jeremiah Cantu and Matthew Kuhn are both running for this position. Kuhn has attended every City Council meeting since this spring and is the director for Homeland Energy Solutions. Cantu sits on the New Hampton Light Plant Board and is the technology coordinator for New Hampton Community Schools.
The competition will pick up in Nashua as the mayor position is open along with two council seats. Butch Betsinger and Robert Maravetz are both running for mayor as Angie Dietz is not re-running. Along with that, eight candidates are jockeying for those two City Council seats.
