Neither Kathleen Amos nor Diann Kitamura is seeking re-election to the Galt Joint Union High School District board of trustees, thus extending the filing deadline for the November race to 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Candidates for the Galt Joint Union Elementary School District also have until Wednesday to file for candidacy, as incumbent John Gordon is the only person to file thus far. Incumbent Susan Richardson is not running for re-election.
If no other candidate files before this week's deadline, there will be no election. Instead, Gordon will automatically remain seated and a fifth trustee will need to be appointed by the school board.
Similarly, trustee Grace Malson will maintain her seat if no one else files. She was appointed to fill a two-year vacant term on the board which expires this year.
Three candidates have already filed for the two open seats on the high school district board.
They include Amy Madison, a fund development director who lives in Acampo; Aaron Stanley, a Galt college student; and Realtor Terry Parker-Owning, who also lives in Galt. She previously served on the school board but chose not to seek re-election in 2010.
In Herald's Arcohe Union School District, incumbents Scott Smith and Michelle Neider were unchallenged and will remain seated. There will be no election.
