New Hampton City Council, School Board Races Uncontested

In New Hampton, three City Council seats are set to expire at the end of the year, but only two candidates are officially on the ballot today. Katie Fisher will run unopposed to retain her at-large position, while Mindy Casterton-Humpal looks to take over the Ward 4 position currently occupied by Bruce Diiro, who did not seek re-election. There were no candidates to file for the expiring seat of Ward 2 Councilman Scott Perkins, who also will not seek re-election. The seat is likely to be filled by a write-in candidate, Kalista Porath-Daly.

New Hampton also won’t have any contested races for its School Board. Current board member Tim Denner is the lone incumbent running for re-election, and although neither Board President Joe Rosonke nor Board Vice President Damian Baltes are seeking re-election,  two other residents, Adam Schwickerath and Bob Ayers, will run uncontested. Ayers served as the district’s business manager for years before retiring in 2020.
