Chadron City Councilman George Klein used last night’s council meeting to announce he’s not running for reelection.
Klein called serving on the council a “unique experience” and said it’s always been his belief that everyone should be involved in providing fiscally-responsible decisions to promote the city and its citizens. He said giving that up was a hard decision he reached after talking it over with his wife.
The only other incumbent Chadron council member up for election this year is Keith Crofutt, and he filed to run last month on the date filings opened.
The deadline for Nebraska incumbents to file to run for an office is February 18 while non-incumbents have until March 2nd to file.
