In the Board of Education election, incumbent Willette Jones was re-elected to a three-year term ending in 2022. She received 427 votes. Receiving the highest numbers of write-in votes to fill the other two seats were Charles Parmentier (with 145 votes) and Justin Elliot (with 63 votes). These seats are also three-year terms ending in 2022.

Thank you to everyone who voted.


Board of Education Election & Candidates

(May 2, 2019) -- On May 21, 2019, district voters will be asked to elect candidates to fill three (3) open seats on the Hudson City School District Board of Education. Each elected seat is a three-year, non-paid term ending in 2022. The candidate who receives the most votes will fill the seat vacated by Chuck Parmentier, whose interim term expires the night of the vote.

Willette Jones, a current Board member, is running for re-election. No other candidates submitted nominating petitions, therefore Ms. Jones is the only candidate listed on the May 21 ballot. In addition to Willette Jones, voters may write-in names of preferred candidates to fill the three open seats. Write-in candidates must reside within the Hudson City School District.

NOTE: The ballot has two sides, a front and a back. When at the polls, please remember to complete both sides and select board members on the back of the ballot before casting your vote.
