Does Dwane Schaake, who is running for trustee of the Wakarusa Township, also serve on the co-op board that recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy?

Yes. Schaake is one of nine members of the board of directors for Farmers Cooperative Assn., the Lawrence-based co-op that filed Sept. 27 for bankruptcy protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Kansas City, Kan.

Schaake, a Republican, is running against Ernest Butell, a Democrat.
