There are five vacancies on the Hudson City School District Board of Education, and only four people filed petitions to run for the seats: Willette Jones, Lakia Walker, Kjirsten Gustavson, and Mark DePace. That means if the five seats are to be filled in the election that takes place on May 17, there need to be some write-in candidates.
Yesterday, Ọṣun Zotique announced on Facebook a run for school board as a write-in candidate.
Two of the current members of the Board of Education, Selha Graham and Mark DePace, were elected as write-in candidates in 2021. Graham won by 81 votes, DePace by 80. DePace, whose term expires at the end of June, is now seeking reelection to the school board.
