Wrenshall board members ousted

Two years of turmoil left two-thirds of voters in Wrenshall School District precincts having seen enough. They swept out incumbents on the school board Tuesday, giving challengers a chance to stabilize declining enrollment and an operating deficit.

“The people running the district are not doing their jobs,” said Dan Gallup, 48, outside of the Silverbrook Township polling center. “Hopefully, they can get it straightened out.”

Pipeline technician Eric Ankrum, firefighter and current board appointee Ben Johnson, and wedding planner Mary Carlson were all first-time electees to the board.
