Board of Educations petitions available

Official petitions to run for the three open seats on the Granville Board of Education became available March 17 and are due back to the district office by April 18.

The board seats currently occupied by President Kathy Nelson and members John Shaw and Pam Tatko will be contested. Those who wish to run must gather the greater number of signatures between either two percent of the residents who voted in the last school election or 25 people, whichever is greater. 482 district residents voted in the 2010 election.

All signatures on the petitions must be from qualified school district voters. Voters will go to the poles May 17 to vote on the 2011-2012 school budget and for three candidates for school board.
