Residents have until July 30 to enter school board race

Time is running out for would-be school board members because July 30 is the last day to file a nominating petition to run for one of four seats on the East Windsor Regional School District Board of Education.

Nominating petitions, to be signed by 10 registered voters, must be turned over to the Mercer County Clerk’s Office by 4 p.m. July 30.

The school board election is Nov. 6.

At stake are the seats held by Paul Connolly, Robert Laverty and Alice Weisman, who represent East Windsor Township, and Jenna Drake, who represents Hightstown. Their terms will expire at the end of the year.

Two of the nine members on the board are Hightstown residents. The seven remaining members live in East Windsor.

Candidates for school board must be at least 18 years old, be able to read and write, and hold U.S. citizenship. They must have lived in the school district for at least one year and be registered to vote.

They may not have an interest in any contract or hold a claim against the school board. They may not serve on the municipal governing body, and may not be disqualified from holding office because of conviction of certain crimes.

Nominating petitions are available at the school district’s business office, through the Mercer County Clerk’s Office or online at the school district’s website at www.eastwindsorregionalschools.com
