No race for Jeannette School Board

| Wednesday, April 10, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

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.
