Three Rochester school board terms expiring
Three terms will be ending this year for members of the Rochester Community Schools Board of Education, leaving three open seats to be filled in this year's November 6 general election. Each of the open seats are six-year terms, with current board members Michelle Bueltel, Barbara Anness and Andrea Walker-Leidy serving terms that expire at the end of 2018. Anness was selected by the board in July 2017 to fill a vacancy created by the resignation of former board secretary Beth Talbert. Bueltel was elected to the board of education in 2016 following an appointment. Walker-Leidy was appointed to by the board in April 2018 to replace Pat Piskulich, who resigned prior to the completion of his term. Both Anness and Bueltel have filed to retain their seats on the board. Walker-Leidy told Downtown Publications in May that she plans to run for the third open seat. The filing deadline for candidates to run is 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 24.
