Two seats on the Hayden Board of Education will be up for election in November.
The open seats are held by Jody Camilletti and Troy Wertenberger. Both plan to run for re-election.
Camilletti, who represents Director District B, plans to seek a second term, because she said, "it seems like the right thing to do." District B covers an area north of Jefferson Avenue and east of the Yampa River to River View Drive and Walnut Street.
"We're a very cohesive group," Camilletti said. "I would like to see that continue for at least another term. We're having some tough times economically and there are some tough decisions to be made. We're pretty close on some of those decisions, and I would like to keep the group together and make some good choices for the community."
Wertenberger, who represents Director District D, also said he wants to keep the current board together. District D covers an area south of Jefferson Avenue, east of Chestnut Street and south of Spruce Street, including Walnut Street and Pine View Drive.
"We have a good board that brings in different concerns and ideas, so we cover all the aspects," Wertenberger said. "And I feel more comfortable now about how things are run. I'm really enjoying it."
Wertenberger said he wanted to finish the job he started with the School Board to improve test scores with the implementation of the new math curriculum.
People interested in running for the Hayden School Board can pick up nominating petitions beginning Aug. 6 at the district office. The deadline to submit the petitions is Aug. 29.
Candidates must live within the director district for which they want to run and meet filing requirements under the Campaign Reform Act.
The act requires candidates to report contributions and expenditures from their campaigns on forms that are available from the County Clerk and Recorder's Office.
