Election Special: Who's Running For School Board, Village Board
The 2016 general election is finally here -- and not too soon for most.
Here's a look at which seats are up locally:
Dorchester Village Board
Dorchester's village board will have two of its five seats up for election.
One seat will be that of board member Lyle Weber. Weber, who was elected in 2008, is not running for re-election.
The other seat up for election is that of Matthew Hoffman, who was appointed to the board last year following the resignation of Brandon Koll.
Hoffman, Andrea Pracheil, and Gerald Sehnert (write-in candidate) have filed for village board, according to sources who contacted the Wilber courthouse. Hoffman and Pracheil will appear on the ballot, while Sehnert filed as a write-in candidate, we're told.
Dorchester School Board
The school board has three seats open -- those of current board members Lindsey Zoubek, Mark Bors and Brad Havlat. None of these incumbents are seeking re-election, we were told in an e-mail to the Times.
It appears the school board race will have some drama, as one seat will be filled by a write-in candidate.
Two candidates who have filed and will appear on the ballot: Neil Pavlish and Mike Hatfield. Two others, Donald B. Hoffman and Kelli Schweitzer, are write-in candidates.
