First candidate enters May election to Williamsville School Board

At least one name will be on the ballot for May's election of three seats on the Williamsville Board of Education, with petitions due in less than four weeks.

Susan McClary, a retired Sweet Home teacher and current assistant to Amherst Supervisor Barry A. Weinstein, has submitted petitions to run, District Clerk Mitzie Serafin said.

The school board election will be held with the annual district budget vote on May 16. Three seats are up for election with terms expiring for members Dr. Patricia Losito, Michael Schmidt and Ronald Shubert. None of the incumbents has announced intentions  to seek re-election.

The successful candidates will serve a three-year term on the nine-member board.

Candidate packets are available for anyone interested in running. Qualified candidates must be able to read and write; be a citizen of the United States; be at least 18 years of age; and be a resident of the school district for at least one year prior to the election.

Prospective candidates must obtain at least 72 valid signatures, which represents two percent of last year’s total vote count. Petitions are due by 5 p.m. April 17.

Necessary forms are available online at or may be picked up at the district office, 105 Casey Road., East Amherst, during business hours.
