Ballot for School Board election could shake out Friday

It's less than two weeks from the May 7 election for the Buffalo School Board and the ballot still isn’t set. But there should be answers Friday.

Four of the 16 School Board candidates face objections to the petitions they submitted and will have hearings Friday morning at the Erie County Board of Elections. They could get bumped off the ballot.

Commissioners from the Board of Elections make determinations on whether specific signatures being challenged are valid or not. In the end, candidates running for district seats will need 500 valid signatures and candidates running for an at-large seat need 1,000.

Candidates facing a hearing Friday are Lou Petrucci and Austin Harig, who are both running for the Park District seat, and Carolette Meadows and Jeffrey Conrad, who are running at-large.
