Three candidates are running for the North District seat on the Buffalo Board of Education. The North District encompasses a large chunk of the city’s North Buffalo and Elmwood Village neighborhoods.

This year’s candidates include incumbent Jason McCarthy and challengers Susan Gillick and Wendy Mistretta.

In 2010, this district turned out the highest number of voters: 2,790. McCarthy won his seat that year by a margin of 323 votes in a three-way race.
