School District to host meetings for school board candidates
Ever thought about serving your community on the Hillsboro School Board? The Hillsboro School District will host informational meetings this week with prospective candidates interested in serving on the board.
Voters will decide this spring on three open positions on the school board. The district will hold two meetings to discuss the school board and its services with people interested in entering the race as candidates.
The first informational meeting is a brown bag lunch meeting on Thursday, Feb. 21, from 11:30 a.m. at the district office, 3083 N.E. 49th Place, in room 218C. The second will be a coffee meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at 8 a.m. at Insomnia Coffee, 317 E. Main St.
At least one new school board member will be elected this spring. Kim Strelchun, who has served on the school board for the past eight years, will not seek a third term. Two other sitting school board members, board president Lisa Allen and Yadira Martinez — who was appointed by the board after the resignation of Wayne Clift in 2017 — are seeking to return to the school board in this May's election.
Candidates have until May 21 to file for the election.
