Ward 3 is located in a west central section of Lansing.

Klinedinst will be challenging incumbent Council member Jesse Garvey, who has filed for re-election in Ward 3.

Several other people also already have filed for the Lansing City Council.

In the city’s Ward 1, Council member Gene Kirby and Rick Huhn have filed as candidates. Ward 1 is located in northeast Lansing.

Marcus D. Majure has filed as a candidate for Ward 2. Ward 2 is located in southern Lansing.

A couple of people, Chris Humphrey and Ralph Taylor, recently have filed as candidates for the Leavenworth Board of Education, according to Klinkenberg.

Members of the Leavenworth school board are elected to at-large positions rather than specific districts within the school system.

Members of the Lansing Board of Education also are elected to at-large positions. And Aaron Yoakam has filed as a candidate for the Lansing school board.
