Candidates for the Buffalo Board of Education can start collecting petitions Tuesday to be on the May ballot, as the field grows.
Tim Hartigan, a faculty coach and adjunct college instructor from South Buffalo, is the latest to announce that he will run for an at-large seat on the board.
Hartigan is a faculty coach at Bryant & Stratton College and an adjunct instructor in the education department at Medaille College, where he teaches literacy courses to undergraduate and graduate students. He also owns TJH5 Consulting, a small business that specializes in copy editing dissertations. He unsuccessfully sought to fill the Park District seat after the departure of Carl Paladino in 2017 and Katherine Flanagan-Priore in 2018.
All nine seats on the School Board are up in the May 7 election.
