Five residents will be competing for three seats in this year’s Riverhead school board election, school officials confirmed Monday.
School board watchdog Laurie Downs of Riverhead will be on the ballot, along with former school board member Lori Hulse of Riverhead and Calverton resident Greg Fischer, who ran unsuccessfully last year for town assessor.
Incumbents Greg Meyer of Calverton and Riverhead resident Kim Ligon are seeking re-election to the seven member board.
Board president Ann Cotten-DeGrasse announced last year during her campaign for town supervisor that she will not seek re-election at the end of her second term.
The school board election and budget vote is May 20.
