The filing period is open for several seats up for grabs on the McKinleyville Community Services District and two local school boards.
Here are the openings:
McKinleyville Community Services District Board of Directors – Three seats now held by Dennis Mayo, Dr. Bill Wennerholm and David Couch are open. Each is a four-year term.
McKinleyville Union School District Board of Trustees – Three seats held by Tim Hooven, Donald Rosebrook and Justin Zabel are open. All are four-year terms.
Northern Humboldt Union School District Board of Trustees – Three seats held by Dana Silvernale, Mike Pigg and Colleen Toste are open. All are four year terms.
To be eligible to run for office you need to be a registered voter residing within the district boundaries. That’s it. You don’t need to gather signatures or pass a test.
But you do need to sign up. You’ll need to find your way to the county Elections Office. You’ll have from July 15 to Aug. 9 to file your papers. If an incumbent in a race doesn’t file to run, then the deadline will be extended to Aug. 14 for that particular race. Election Day is Nov. 5.
