Three Board Seats Up for Grabs; Petition Packets Available Now

This May, voters have an opportunity to elect three people to the Rush-Henrietta Central School District Board of Education.

Robert Cook resigned his seat mid-year, so there are some changes to the traditional rules for board occupancy. The two candidates receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to serve three-year terms beginning July 1, 2020, and ending June 30, 2023. The next candidate receiving the highest number of votes will be elected to serve a term beginning upon the filing of the oath of office and ending June 30, 2021.

Petitions must be filed with the school district clerk prior to 5 p.m. Monday, April 20, at the Parker Administration Building, 2034 Lehigh Station Road, Henrietta. If you have questions, please contact Karen Flanigan, school district clerk, at 359-5010 or kflanigan@rhnet.org.
