Harpswell voters will choose two of three candidates for the Maine School Administrative District 75 Board of Directors in the town election on March 11.
Incumbents Eric Lusk and Margaret “Greta” Warren and challenger Gregory Greenleaf have qualified for the ballot, according to Town Clerk Catherine Doughty. The deadline to file papers was Tuesday, Jan. 10.
Incumbent Kevin Johnson is the only candidate for Select Board. Johnson, the chair of the board, is running for a fourth consecutive term.
All terms are three years.
Lusk, a financial adviser, joined the school board in 2020. With no candidate on the ballot, he garnered 17 write-in votes to secure a three-year term, according to The Times Record.
Warren, a nonprofit administrator, joined the school board in 2022, when the Select Board picked her from among four candidates to fill a vacancy left by the resignation of Alison Hawkes.
Greenleaf teaches English at Greely High School in Cumberland. He was one of four residents who sought Warren’s seat in 2022. (Editor’s note: Gregory Greenleaf writes the “Lost on a Loop Trail” humor column for the Harpswell Anchor.)
With two seats on the ballot, voters can select up to two candidates and the top two vote-getters will take the seats.
MSAD 75 consists of Bowdoin, Bowdoinham, Harpswell and Topsham. Harpswell has four seats on its 14-member board.
The election will coincide with Harpswell’s first traditional town meeting since 2019, on March 11 at Harpswell Community School. The polls for the election will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., while the business meeting will commence at 10 a.m.
