School Board Petitions Due

Seats are up for grabs in all districts

    Monday is the final day for those who are interested in filing their petitions to run for school board seats that are up for grabs in all districts.
    Liz Pucci, who filled in on the East Hampton School Board when Stephen Talmage, a long-time member, stepped down, has announced that she will run to retain her seat. At press time it was unclear whether Laura Anker Grossman, the current school board president, whose term is also up this year, will run again. Both of the seats are for three-year terms.
    In Amagansett, Mary Lownes’s term is over at the end of the school year. In Springs the seat held by John B. Grant, the board’s vice president, is also available. Kelly White’s seat, a five-year term, will be voted on in Montauk. And in Wainscott, the seat vacated by Iris Osborn last month will be filled with someone to see out the rest of the two-year term. David Eagan’s three-year seat on the board is also up for election. In Bridgehampton, there are three three-year terms up for election this year.
    Nominating petitions are available in district offices and must be returned by the end of the day on Monday.
    The elections will be held in conjunction with the school budget votes on May 15.
