JAMESTOWN – There are two seats up for a vote in this year’s Jamestown School Board elections but when voters go to the poles on May 21 they will only have two names to choose from – and both are incumbents who already sit on the board.
According to school clerk Nita Walter, only Patrick Slagle and Joe Pawelski have submitted petitions to run for the school board’s two seats that are up for a vote next week. Both already serve on the school board, with Slagle currently serving as the vice president.
In addition to choosing the school board members, voters will also vote on the proposed 2019-2020 school budget – which exceeds $90 million but does not include a property tax increase. It is available to the public at the budget page on the school district website.
