After one of two candidates seeking a seat on the Sweet Home School Board decided to withdraw this week, the district has extended its deadline for submission of nominating petitions until May 10.
Anyone interested in running for the one open seat may pick up petitions from Judy Russell, District Clerk, at the District Office, 1901 Sweet Home Road, Amherst.
There is one five-year term open, which had been held by Joseph Miranda who is not seeking reelection.
Conor Jackson, currently the student ex-officio member on the board, withdrew his petition earlier this week. Nadine Ocasio is now the only person running for the open seat.
