APPLICATIONS SOUGHT FOR WARD 2 SCHOOL COMMITTEE OPENING
Mayor Cayer is currently accepting applications from registered voters in Ward 2 who are interested in being considered for nomination to the Lewiston School Committee. Applications are available immediately from the City Clerk’s Office and at the city’s website at http://www.lewistonmaine.gov/125/Joint-Agencies-Boards-and-Committees. This opening is for a two-year term but is filling a current vacancy. The term expires January 2022. All eligible applicants must be at least 20 years old and must be registered voters of Ward 2 in Lewiston. Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office no later than Monday, June 14, by 4 pm. The appointment is scheduled to be confirmed by the City Council during their meeting of June 15.
As a former chairperson of the School Committee, Mayor Cayer understands the important work that needs to be done by the Committee in advance of the start of the new school year in September. Since the City Charter requires the City Council to vote on the appointment, the Mayor is asking for nominations now in time to meet the June 15 City Council meeting. The next City Council meeting after this date isn’t until July, and Mayor Cayer felt it was important to have a representative from Ward 2 on the Committee as soon as possible to start their work.
Questions regarding the procedures for nomination may be directed to the City Clerk’s Office at 513-3124. Questions regarding the tasks and duties of a School Committee member may be directed to the Lewiston School Department.
