School Board Candidate Petitions & Return Deadlines -- April 17

Voting for two Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education Trustee positions will be held on Tuesday, May 16. Qualified district residents who wish to run for a Board Trustee position must pick up Candidate Petitions from Michele Domanick, District Clerk, in the Phipps Admin. Bldg., 345 Lakeville Rd. (516-441-4020), schooldays, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. By law, completed Petitions must be returned to Ms. Domanick no later than Monday, April 17, by 5 p.m.

Although schools are closed on Monday, April 17, Ms. Domanick will be at Phipps until 5 p.m. on that day to receive signed petitions. The lottery for ballot position will be held on Tuesday, April 18, at 10 a.m. It will be conducted by Ms. Domanick.

When picking up a Petition, candidates will need to indicate the Board seat they are seeking--either that of Susan Healy or of Lawrence Gross. (Ms. Healy is seeking reelection; Mr. Gross is not.) In addition to the Petition, Ms. Domanick will give potential candidates an informational packet of materials that explains the eligibility requirements to run for the school board and of those who sign petitions.
