Contested school board race slated in Roxbury district.
There will be a contested school board race in the K-12 Roxbury school district this fall, but not in the K-8 Mount Arlington district.
Petitions to run for the Board of Education race in November were due in the Morris County clerk’s office at 4 p.m. Monday.
Both districts opted several years ago to move their April elections to November. This year, the general election is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 4.
In Roxbury, three, three-year seats are up for re-election.
All three incumbents are seeking another three year term each.
They include Ronald Lucas of Perin Place, James Monaghan, Jr., of Hillary Terrace and David Ramage of Lazarus Drive.
Seeking a return to the board are two previous members: Pat Miller of Bass Drive and Chris Rogers of Ford Road. First-time candidate Terasa Fedorchak is also seeking one of the three seats on the board.
In Mount Arlington, three, three-year terms are also up for re-election.
Long-time board member Gene Paradiso opted not to seek another three year term.
Instead, Karl Svenningsen of Henmar Drive is seeking one of the three seats, as are incumbents Rachel Byrne of Bertrand Road and John Longtine of Hover Drive.
