The ballot positions for the Board Of Education (BOE) candidates have been released by the County with one of the candidates, Mayda Sanchez, withdrawing her name from consideration. This leaves four candidates, all men, in the following position on the November ballet:
- Jeof Vita
- Sundjata Sekou
- Rodric Bowman
- Christopher Miller
Mayda Sanchez, who initially submitted her petition in July, later withdrew her name, citing personal reasons which included a new work schedule.
Three (3) Board positions are available this year.
The BOE election is determined by the highest three vote getters. The random positioning, as opposed to alphabetical listing, gives candidates a non-determined opportunity to be voted into office since a number of voters simply pick the first three (3) candidates.
The BOE election is held the same day as the general election, Tuesday, November 4, 2014.
