Niekamp loses Quo Warranto appeal

      Quincy School Board member Bud Niekamp has lost his appeal to a Quo Warranto lawsuit.Last year, a judge declared his 2009 election to the Quincy School Board void.

      That's because he was a sitting Adams County Board member at the time he was elected to the school board.

      State law says that is not allowed.

      Niekamp appealed the ruling and was allowed to remain on the school board pending the results of that appeal. He then ran for election to an open board seat in the April election and won, moving to the new seat at the April board meeting.

      KHQA tried contacting Niekamp for reaction but was unable to reach him.
