Three trustee seats are up for grabs in Sturtevant and four candidates – including all three incumbents – will have their names on the ballot in April.
Incumbents Carrie Harbach, Theresa Ailes and Jason Eckman along with newcomer Dan Moore Tuesday turned in their nomination papers with the required number of signatures.
Moore said he decided to run for the village board not because he thinks current trustees aren’t doing a great job but because he wants to have a hand in where Sturtevant is headed now that Foxconn looks to be a sure thing.
“The board is doing a really good job, and the trustees who are up for re-election are good people who are neighbors and friends,” he said. “But I’ve been thinking of running for a couple of years now, and this feels like the right time.”
Moore said he was ready to circulate nomination papers in both 2015, but life was too busy. Now, though, he feels the time is right. Plus, his daughter recently turned 18, and she thinks it would be pretty cool to cast her first vote for her dad.
Unlike its neighbors, Sturtevant will not have a primary. The general election is April 3.
