In the May 12, 2017 issue of The Perry Chief, a story stated that eligible electors in the City of Perry had until May 19 to apply for nomination to run for the school board seat which was left open by the passing of Marjean Gries, and eventually filled by her son.

The story should have stated that eligible electors have until May 19 to file a petition to hold a special election, whether they wish to be a nominee for the spot or not.

The Perry Chief regrets the error.
