Another hat in ring

With the deadline to file for nonpartisan city offices on June 17, the city of Choteau has picked up another mayoral candidate as Nate White submitted his filing paperwork at the Teton County Election Administrator’s Office on Monday.

Incumbent Mayor Dan Lannen, who retired earlier this year from a long career with Frontline Ag Solutions, has filed for a two-year term and is now facing a challenge from Choteau businessman Chris Hindoien and from White.

Mayoral candidates must be at least 21 years old and have lived in Montana for at least three years, and in their city for at least two years before the election. The mayoral filing fee is $42 for Choteau.

With three candidates for the mayor’s position, Choteau will need to hold a primary election on Sept. 10.

The general election will be held by mail ballot on Nov. 5, according to Election Administrator Paula Jaconetty.
