BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Only one incumbent, out of three, is running for a new term on the board of education in this year's elections.
Incumbent Barry Walker filed a petition to run for another term on the board of education, but incumbents Zachary Malek, representing Bridgewater, and Ann Marie Mead, representing Raritan, were not listed as candidates after the deadline to file passed Monday afternoon.
There are two open spots representing Bridgewater on the board of education in this year's elections. In addition to Walker, running for a three-year term are John-Paul "JP" Levin, Jessica Levitt and Scott Mihalick.
Running for a one-year unexpired term is Jean Lee, who was chosen in late June to fill the seat vacated by former board member Melanie Thiesse. Lee will be running unopposed in November to finish out Thiesse's term.
Levin, Levitt and Mihalick had all thrown their hats into the ring this year in a bid to fill Thiesse's seat, but Lee had been chosen. Levitt is well known to the board as having been a staunch supporter of later school start times in the district.
Finally, to represent Raritan, Lucretia "Lucy" Sandler is running unopposed for the one three-year seat on the board.
The elections will be held Nov. 3, 2020.
