ROCKLAND — Tanja Barbour of Cranberry Isles Drive has decided not to seek a seat on the Regional School Unit 13 Board.

Barbour took out nomination papers Tuesday, Sept. 14 but announced Thursday, Sept. 16 that she may consider running at another time but currently needed to focus her attention elsewhere.

That leaves two people running for a pair of three-year seats and one for a one-year seat.

Jason White of Nevelson Street and Kelli McCannell took out papers for the pair of three-year seats. White is a social worker with Maine Behavioral Health. McCannell is the executive director with Hardy Girls Healthy Women, a nonprofit that engages young people in social action.

The deadline for candidates to file nomination papers to get on the Nov. 2 ballot is Monday, Sept. 20.

The two have not filed their papers yet with the city clerk’s office.

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.

Three people also 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 Sept. 15.

Dorr is the co-owner and 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 filed his 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 as people who want to file nomination papers.
