Voters in the Northridge Local Schools and Monroe Township will see numerous candidate options, along with an income-tax and bond issue, when they go to the polls this fall.
In the village of Johnstown, however, candidates filed for an equal number of open seats on both the Johnstown-Monroe Board of Education and the Johnstown Village Council.
Current board president Ruth Ann Booher and member Tim Swauger have no challengers in the Nov. 7 election.
Village Council is poised to have all incumbents return except Sean Staneart, who filed to run for a seat on the Monroe Township board of trustees. Newcomer Charles K. Dutcher likely will join council, filling Staneart’s seat.
