CHADRON – A second candidate has filed to run for the Chadron City Council, where 2 seats are up for grabs this year.
Joe Johndreau is the owner and operator of Sprinkler Solutions, a lawn sprinkler maintenance and repair business.
An unsuccessful candidate for the Chadron School board 2 years ago, Johndreau had been a wildland firefighter for the U-S Forest Service until resigning last spring.
The only other candidate to file is incumbent Keith Crofutt, who works in IT at Chadron State College. He filed the first day candidates could do so.
The other incumbent Chadron city council member is George Klein, and he announced two weeks ago that he would not seek a second term.
The deadline for Nebraska incumbents to file to run for an office is February 18 while non-incumbents have until March 2nd to file.
