February 27, 2012, 2:08 PM
BROOKINGS, SD -
The South Dakota city of Brookings has canceled its spring elections after all five candidates went unchallenged.
Mayor Tim Reed and councilors John Kubal and Tom Bezdichek will get three more years on the city council. Current Brookings School District board president Steve Bayer will be seated for another three-year term. And former superintendent Bob Jostad will get a three-year school board term by default after no one challenged him for a seat held by Tom Yseth, who chose not to seek re-election.
Council members are sworn in in May, and school board members take their seats in July.
The elections would have been held April 10.
