Tawnya Panizzi

Lower Valley voters will have the chance on Tuesday to hear from candidates seeking a term on the Fox Chapel Area School Board.

The League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh is hosting a forum to which all nine school board candidates have been invited.

The event is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Aspinwall Presbyterian Church, 299 Center Ave.

Nine candidates are seeking five open seats on the board. They are: Marybeth Dadd of Riverwatch Drive, Greg Dolan of Mayflower Drive, Nancy Foster of Windsor Road, Ron Frank of Heathergate Drive, Eric Hamilton of Woodshire Drive, Vanessa Lynch of Saxonburg Boulevard, Lisa Marie Rutkowski of Davonshire Drive, Eric Schmidt of Oakhurst Road and Terry Wirginis of Old Pine Lane.

All of the candidates cross-filed except Dolan, who is on the Republican ticket only.

Hamilton, Rutkowski and Schmidt are vying for two open seats in Region One; Lynch, Wirginis, Frank and Dolan are competing for two open seats in Region Two; and Dadd and Foster are each vying to fill the one open seat in Region Three.

All terms run four years.

Audience members can submit written questions to be asked to candidates.

The American Association of University Women Fox Chapel Area affiliate is the co-sponsor of the forum, which is free and open to the public.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
