GREENBURGH, N.Y. – The submission deadline for Board of Education candidates at Greenburgh schools has reopened after a challenger withdrew his name from the race.
William Ng opted out of the race for a board position late last week for what he said were personal reasons.
As a result, the district has again opened up the election to challengers wishing to run in the board’s May 15 election. Anyone who wishes to seek a seat on the board has until May 4 at 5 p.m. to register with the district.
Already one candidate, Milena Din, has taken advantage of the extended deadline and submitted her name to be included on the ballot, according to the district.
As of Wednesday, a field of seven candidates was set to compete for three seats on the board. The three incumbent board members whose terms are set to expire, board President Terry Williams and Trustees Cora Carey and Charles Bronz, are all vying for re-election.
They will face four challengers: Sonja Brown, Jacqueline Hoeger, Eric Bitterman and Din.
Seats on the Greenburgh Central 7 board carry a three-year term.
Residents will have a chance to meet the contestants during the Parent-Teacher Association’s "BOE candidate night," May 9 at 7 p.m. at Woodlands High School.
