No race for Jeannette School Board

In next month's primary, there are no contested races for Jeannette School Board.
There are four open seats — currently held by Anita Mash, William Brasco, Randy Highlands and Morrison Lewis Jr.
Incumbents Mash, Brasco and Lewis are running for re-election. Highlands is not running for another term. Brasco and Mash have cross-filed, running on both the Democratic and Republican tickets. Lewis is running as a Democrat.
Newcomer Kelly Singer Marquis has cross-filed.
Barring any write-in campaigns, the four running in this year's election will likely join the school board next year.
The only big contested race Jeannette voters will face in next month's primary is the one for mayor.
Incumbent Democrat Mayor Robert Carter is running for re-election and will face fellow Democrat Richard Jacobelli in the primary. There are no Republicans running for the office, and barring any write-in campaigns, the primary winner will likely become the next city mayor.
The primary will be held May 21. The last day to register to vote before the primary is April 22.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
