School board candidates unopposed in November

Three incumbents will be running unopposed for the three open seats on the Rochester Community Schools' Board of Education during this year's general election on Tuesday, November 6. Current board members Barbara Anness, Michelle Bueltel and Andrea Walker-Leidy were the only candidates to file to run by the deadline of Tuesday, July 24. Each of the open seats are six-year terms, with current board member's 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 to replace Pat Piskulich, who resigned prior to the completion of his term. Voters living in the Rochester Community School District will choose these candidates in November.
