Sandy Creek Board Petition Filing Period Extended to May 13

Due to the recent withdrawal of a candidate for the office of school board member, the Sandy Creek Central School District has extended the deadline to May 13 for filing petitions for nominating candidates for the office of board member.

Such petitions must be filed at the District Clerk’s Office, at 124 Salisbury St., Sandy Creek, NY, no later than 5 p.m. on that date.

The petitions must be signed by at least 25 qualified voters of the Sandy Creek School District, and shall list the name and residence address of each signer and the name and residence address of the candidate.

Petition forms may be picked up at the District Office on weekdays when school is in session, during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

One seat is up for vote, currently filled by Shannon Akey.

Voting will take place on May 20 between noon and 8 p.m. at the Sandy Creek District Office.
