There is plenty of interest in the School District 57 Board of Trustees position vacated by Trent Derrick.
Five people have filed nomination papers by Friday’s deadline.
They are: Andrew Burton, Lance Forsberg, Shannon Freeman, Milton Mahoney, Audrey McKinnon, and Brian Trotter
Notable in its absence on the list is the name of Stuart Parker, who announced he was running two weeks ago only to be greeted by protesters at his announcement and, subsequently, a video showing him making questionable comments during a UNBC lecture last year.
Derrick, and Mackenzie trustee Shuirose Valimohamed resigned earlier this year following a damning report about systemic racism in the district.
Rachael Weber and David Szucsko have put their names forward for the Mackenzie seat vacated by Valimohamed.
