Peetz elects three school board members

Sterling says no to pot dispensaries


The Peetz Plateau School District will soon have three new board of education members.

In Colorado’s Tuesday election, voters in Logan County’s Peetz Precinct selected from among four candidates to the fill the vacancies created by term limits.

According to unofficial results released by the Colorado Secretary of State Elections Division, Michael Hill received 182 votes, the most of all candidates. He will be joined on the board of education by Nick Fehringer, who received 178 votes, and Tiffany Vallier, who received 116. Loretta Coakley was 11 votes behind, with 105.

Brad Segelke and Jeff Long will remain on the board of education as they are both halfway through their first four-year terms.

Peetz School District Superintendent Mark Collard told the Sidney Sun-Telegraph last week that the new members will be installed at the next regular board of education meeting, which is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16.

Sterling, Colo., voters also defeated a measure that would have opened the city to marijuana-related businesses.

Sixty-four percent of voters rejected a measure to remove an existing ordinance and allow “the operation of marijuana cultivation facilities, marijuana product manufacturing facilities, marijuana testing facilities and retail marijuana stores.”
