Ris­ing Sun names new mem­bers to election board


RIS­ING SUN — An al­most- new board has been seated for the up­com­ing Oct. 16 town election af­ter a unan­i­mous vote Tues­day night by the com­mis­sion­ers.

Steve Miller, Melissa Copen­haver and Kim­berly Wei­d­ner will over­see the polls and tab­u­late and an­nounce the win­ners in the race to elect a mayor and two town com­mis­sion­ers. Only Copen­haver has ex­pe­ri­ence on the board.

Ris­ing Sun vot­ers go to the polls Oct. 16 to elect a mayor and two town com­mis­sion­ers. Both vot­ers and can­di­dates must be regis­tered by Sept. 15, with can­di­dates get­ting an ex­tra hour to ap­pear at Ris­ing Sun Town Hall to file. Calvin Bo­nen­berger, town ad­min­is­tra­tor, said the can­di­date dead­line is 6 p. m.

Town of­fi­cials knew they would have at least one election board seat to fill with the April death of Mar y Lou Ben­jamin.
