Some races for County Board April 1|
There will be five races for the 21 posts on the Langlade County Board of Supervisors in the April 1 election as of the close of filing Tuesday.
There will be some new faces on the panel when the organizational meeting is held during the spring including Peter Pennington in District 13, which includes the town of Antigo, Ward 1 and Angela Schreiber in the city of Antigo’s District 8.
In Antigo’s 9th Ward no candidates filed for the position. The ward covers the southeast portion of the city. The seat had been held by Dale Dahms, who declined to seek re-election.
