ROCKLAND — A second candidate came forward to represent Rockland on the regional school board, but with a week left to make the fall ballot, there are still not enough people running to fill the vacancies.

Jason White of Nevelson Street took out papers last week for one of two three-year seats up for a vote at the November election. White is a social worker with Maine Behavioral Health.

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. 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. Martz also filed his papers and qualified for the ballot.

The deadline to file papers to get on the Nov. 2 ballot is Sept. 20.

If no one files papers for a school board seat, the Rockland City Council will be able to appoint someone to fill the seat until November 2022.

Three people took out papers for a single Rockland City Council seat.

Councilor Ben Dorr of James Street, Henry Hustus III of North Main Street and Nicole Lynn Kalloch of south Main Street took out papers for the single seat. No one filed any papers as of Friday morning.

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

Kalloch is plant manager at Sierra Peaks manufacturing plant on Pleasant Street in Rockland and is also office manager for her husband’s contracting business — J.K. Kalloch.

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.

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 with the city clerk by the same Sept. 20 deadline.
