As Gossips reported earlier, there are five vacancies on the Hudson City School District Board of Education. The terms of four board members--Willette Jones, Mark DePace, Chuck Parmentier, and Lakia Walker--expire at the end of June; Sage Carter resigned in March before her term was up. Those seeking election (or reelection) to the school board had to submit their signed petitions on Wednesday, April 27. We now know whose names will be on the ballot on May 17. Jones, DePace, and Walker are all seeking reelection. There is only one new contender: Kjirsten Gustavson. Only four candidates for five available seats.
