VALLEY CITY, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – In the Valley City Park Board election Susan Kringlie received 1,088 votes followed by William “Buff” Murray who had 988 and Michael Lentz with 856 and Jenni Lou Russi with 681 votes in the June 12th election. The top three were re-elected.
But there is an interesting scenario after incumbent Michael Lentz accepted a position as the Park District Superintendent earlier this year. Lentz who was re-elected can’t serve in both positions. He resigned before his name could be removed from the ballot.
Valley City Park Board Chairman Dick Gulmon said the board can appoint someone to replace Lentz and then hold another election in two year.
