POWNAL — Two candidates will compete for a one-year seat on the Regional School Unit 5 Board of Directors in the June 12 election.

Two uncontested seats on the Board of Selectmen will also be on the ballot – one for a three-year term and the other to complete the remaining one-year term of Chairman Tim Giddinge, who announced earlier this month that’d he’ll step down from the post effective June 30.

Selectman Jon Morris is seeking re-election and another three year term on the board, while Shawn Bennett hopes to complete Giddinge’s term.

Another resignation – that of RSU 5 board member Naomi Ledbetter – opened up a one-year term on the board. Erica Giddinge and Paul Benjamin Schulz will compete for the seat.

Duane Snow will be the only candidate on the ballot for a three-year term on the Cemetery Commission.

Voting will take place at Mallett Hall, 429 Hallowell Road.
