Two Farmington school board seats open

Two Farmington Public Schools (FPS) Board of Education positions will be on the ballot this November, as the terms of President David N. Turner and Secretary Mark Przeslawski expire.

All candidates must submit an Affidavit of Identity when filing for office. As a school district with 10,000 or more in population according to the 2010 Federal census, FPS candidates must also file nominating petitions with a minimum of 40 signatures and a maximum of 100 signatures from qualified and registered electors, or a $100 nonrefundable filing fee.

Candidates must be a citizen of the United States and a qualified and registered elector of the school district the candidate seeks to represent by the filing deadline, which is 4 p.m. on Tuesday, July 24, 2018.

As of June 5, one candidate, Zach Rich of Farmington Hills, has filed petitions.

More information about filing requirements, petitions, and elections is available at oakgov.com.
