WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee will have at least three new members in the fall.
And if you live in Williamstown or Lanesborough, one of them could be you.
Three current members of the seven-person committee have announced they will not seek re-election on Tuesday, Nov. 4, and papers are available to seek nomination to one of the five seats that will appear on the ballot.
In Lanesborough, Committee member Robert Ericson has decided not to seek another four-year term. The seat currently held by Chris Dodig (appointed to the committee to serve an unexpired term) also will be on the ballot.
In Williamstown, two positions will be vacant — a four-year seat held by David Langston and the remaining two years of a position currently held by David Backus. Carolyn Greene is also up for re-election to a four-year term.
Nomination papers must be submitted with a total of 38 certified voter signatures by July 22 to the town clerk in either Williamstown or Lanesborough. Candidates from either town can receive signatures from residents of both towns; the seven committee members are elected by a majority of voters in both member towns.
Papers are available now in the town clerk's offices in both towns and at the District Office in Mount Greylock Regional School on Cold Spring Road.
It was noted at the last meeting of the committee that the annual town meeting (May 20 in Williamstown and June 10 in Lanesborough) is an excellent time to get signatures.
