Four Council seats up for election
June 16, 2021
Big Sandy is divided up into two wards. Ward one runs south of the main street that runs from the Catholic Church to the cemetery. Ward two runs north of the same street. The council has two representatives from each ward. The Mayor represents the entire city. There are three Big Sandy Council members up for re-election. From Ward 2, Krystyl Kulbeck and Colby Baumgarn. Krystle was appointed April 1st but now must run for the position outright.
From Ward 1, Jon Sheehy is also up for re-election. Rich Jesperson is also from Ward 1 but not up for re-election.
Mayor Shaud Schwarzbach is also running for re-election. Shaud said he ran for the city council originally because he didn't like what the council was doing and believed he had a civic duty to serve his town. He hopes there will be many who would like to serve. Every election for the city council should have more than the minimum of candidates. If you would like to run for city council, you must register with the Clerk and Recorder in Fort Benton by June 20th. Elections are this fall.
