People interested in running for a seat on the School Board this year have until April 22 to file the petitions required to win a place on the ballot.
The seats of board President Kenneth Graber and board member Brenda Christopher are up in the May 21 election, which is preceded by a meet-the-candidates forum on May 13.
Graber said at Monday’s board meeting that he will seek another three-year term on the board, while Christopher did not reveal her plans.
Candidates must collect 63 signatures on their petitions – a figure equal to 2 percent of the 3,151 people who voted in last year’s election – from eligible voters in the district.
To qualify to serve on the seven-member board, candidates must be United States citizens, 18 or older, able to read and write and a legal resident of the school district for at least one year before the election. They can’t be an employee of the district and must be the only member of their household serving on the board.
Anyone interested can pick up an information packet at the district offices from Clerk Sandra A. Janik, who can be reached at 686-3201.

•Supervisor Dino J. Fudoli said he will recuse himself from any deliberations involving land on Transit Road that he owns and intends to sell as part of a doctor’s plans to build a medical facility on the site.
The Town Board and the town’s Planning Board are meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday to review the environmental impact of the proposed Buffalo Vascular Center, a one-story, outpatient health care center at 6335-6337 Transit Road.
The 6,810-square-foot structure would be built on a 1.4-acre parcel, on Transit near Rehm Road, which combines Fudoli’s property and an adjoining site that are both being sold, according to Fudoli and town records.
Fudoli and his brother, Nicole, have owned the land at 6335 Transit since 1992. The supervisor said he expects to close on the sale, which is contingent on the Town Board approving the project site plan, in the next 30 days.
Fudoli said he will recuse himself from any vote on, or discussion of, the project at the joint Planning Board-Town Board meeting and at the Town Board meeting.
“I’m going to leave the room,” Fudoli said, and Deputy Supervisor Bryan Fiume will run the meetings.
Following the joint session at 6:30, a Town Board work session will be held at 7. The full Town Board meeting, when the project site plan is likely to be voted on, starts at 8. The meetings will be held in Town Hall, 21 Central Ave.
