Thinking about running for local school board?

Residents of the Menlo Park City School District who are thinking of running for one of two school board seats that will be filled in the November election are invited to an informational event at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 29, in the district office board room at 181 Encinal Ave. in Atherton.

Current board members Joan Lambert and Laura Rich, whose terms expire in 2014, will talk about the roles and responsibilities of school board members, district initiatives, and the candidacy filing process, according to a district announcement.

They will also answer questions from participants.

The terms of Jeff Childs and Maria Hilton expire in December.

The filing period for running for the board is July 16 through Aug. 10. Information about filing papers to run for office may be obtained by calling the county elections office at 312-5222.
