Four candidates running for three, three-year terms on the Orchard Park School Board.

Incumbent David Nielsen, who has served on the board since 2008, is seeking his third term.

Other candidates include newcomer Jacquelyn M. Giese of West Seneca and Orchard Park residents Dwight D. Mateer and Christine Gray Tinnesz, who were unsuccessful in last year’s race.

Incumbents Rachel Baksa and Sean Wittmann are not seeking re-election.

The Eggert Road Parent Teacher Organization is holding a candidates’ night at 7 p.m. May 5 in the district’s offices at 2240 Southwestern Blvd.

Meanwhile, the district’s parent teacher organizations are holding two community budget information sessions this week. The first begins at 7 p.m. Monday at the high school, 4040 Baker Road, and the second is at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Windom Elementary School, 3879 Sheldon Road.
