The deadline to file to run for a seat on the Delta Greely School Board is Friday, August 6. Currently all four incumbents have filed for reelection. Those individuals are Debbie Joslin, Flower Cole, Eileen Herman, and Richard Mauer. Joslin is the only member that has not served on the School Board for multiple terms.

Joslin, Cole, and Mauer all hold seats that are scheduled for reelection this year and will be for three-year terms.

Herman serves in a seat that was appointed within the last year and comes up for election to fill the remainder of the term which is two years. Herman originally held the seat and chose not to run last year. After no candidates filed to run and the seat did not appear on the ballot. Local activist Pam Goode attempted to run as a write-in, but there was no place to write in on the ballot. Both Herman and Goode applied to the School Board for appointment to the seat and the Board appointed Herman.

Filing documents must be submitted to the Division of Elections no later than 5 p.m. August 6. Write-in candidates must submit their letter of intent no later than 5 p.m. on September 30.
