Chester Area School will be having a school board election. Four district residents have submitted petitions for one of three open seats on the board.
The election will take place June 18. Chester Business Manager Kristi Lewis said petitions have been turned in by incumbents Nancy Meyer of Wentworth and Janet Park of Chester, both of whom have served on the board since 1998. Additional petitions have been turned in by Joann Alverson and Deanna Reiff, both of Chester.
Lewis said she is aware of two petitions currently circulating. The deadline to turn in petitions in Chester is May 13. The school board extended the deadline because Lewis will be out of the office May 10, which is the state's official petition deadline.
