Five people have filed for three seats that will be open in the November election on Northville's school board.
The five people who submitted documentation before the Aug. 14 deadline are:
- Michael Barrett
- Roland Hwang
- Cyndy Jankowski
- Adam Phelps
- Matthew Wilk
Barrett and Hwang interviewed for the board-appointed interim seats currently held by Jankowski and Wilk. Jankowski was appointed to replace Joan Wadsworth and Wilk was appointed to replace Anita Bartschat.
Currrent school board president Dottie Garrity will not be seeking re-election following the end of her first term.
"I really enjoyed my time on the board but at this point it’s just time for me to pursue other options in my life," she said.
Garrity explained that it's a very time-consuming job and isn't sure she'd be able to give it the time her duties would require. She added that she was glad five others filed to seek the position.
"Campaigning makes for a well-rounded board member," she said. "It allows you to get out and meet people."
