Note:

Board members with a ’25 will run in ’23 for a 2-year term.  Members with a ’27 will also run in ’23, but for a four-year term.  Following the ’23 election, everyone will be on their proper rotations. 

 

Each standard term is four years.  The board must have seven members, and there must be three running for a new term at a different time from the other four.
