FAIRMONT – A third person has filed to run for school board in Fairmont.

Martha Myren added her name to the list Tuesday.

She joins incumbent Rufus Rodriguez, who filed Monday, and Mike Edman, who filed previously.

Three seats on the board will be on the ballot this fall. Two board members have said they will not run. They are Del Ellis and Danielle Schutz.

Those interested in running for the board may file at district administrative offices at Fairmont Elementary School through 5 p.m. Aug. 14.

In Ward 3, Randy Lubenow filed his candidacy to replace Jim Zarling, who has said he does not plan to run again.
