A fourth candidate has emerged in the race for the USD 383 school board.

Christine Weixelman filed for the board Friday morning. She joins incumbent Karla Hagemeister along with challengers Jayme Morris-Hardeman and Steven Ruzzin in the upcoming election. There are currently three open seats on the school board.

Weixelman is a Manhattan native with 26 years experience as a Registered Nurse, including five years as a school nurse in USD 383. She’s also a CASA volunteer and has served previously on the board of Manhattan Catholic Schools. Weixelman tells KMAN she’s running because she would like to see more accountability on all levels to ensure leadership are doing the job they are there to do.

Incumbent school board members Jurdene Coleman and Katrina Lewison have yet to announce if they’ll seek re-election. Their terms are up at the end of the year.

The filing deadline for the 2021 elections is June 1.
