ROCKLAND — With two weeks remaining for candidates to file nomination papers to get on the November ballot, there are still no people seeking two three-year seats on the school board.

The two seats are being vacated by incumbent Regional School Unit 13 board members Tom Peaco and Doug Curtis Jr. who said they would not run again.

Rockland has five seats on the 10-member RSU 13 Board.

Nomination papers must be filed with the city by Sept. 20.

The election is Nov. 2 although absentee ballots will be available during the previous month leading up to election day.

David Martz, who was appointed in July to the seat vacated earlier this year by Gerald Weinand, took out papers for the remaining one-year on the seat he now holds.

Two candidates stepped forward for the single seat on the Rockland City Council that will be on the ballot this fall.

Incumbent Councilor Ben Dorr of James Street took out nomination papers Aug. 17 for the three-year seat. Henry Hustus III of North Main Street took out papers the following day.

Dorr is the co-owner/operator of Curator on Main Street. He is completing his first term on the Council.

Hustus is superintendent of the Rockland Cemetery Association, which oversees four local cemeteries. He also operates a home occupation as a gunsmith.

One seat on the Rockland Port District is also up for election. A seat held by Noah Barnes is up for election. The term is for five years. Barnes took out papers last week.

If someone wants to be considered as a write-in candidate for the Nov 2 election, they must file a declaration of write-in candidacy by the Sept. 20 with the city clerk.
