Woodside School election: Filing period extended

Two incumbents and two challengers have qualified for the ballot as of late Friday for three open seats on the Woodside Elementary School District board. Because incumbent Bettina Pike is not running for re-election, the filing period has been extended to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Incumbents Marc Tarpenning and current board president Wendy Warren Roth (Crandall) will be joined on the ballot by challengers Claire Wilbur Pollioni and Robert Hooper.

Mr. Hooper has taught at many grade levels in public schools, he said. He has a son who will be a sixth-grader at Woodside School and a daughter who has just graduated and is entering high school.

Ms. Pollioni did not respond to several phone calls from the Almanac seeking information about her and her reasons for running.
