• SCHOOL DIRECTOR (to serve through the date of the annual meeting in March 2020).
• SCHOOL DIRECTOR (to serve through the date of the annual meeting in March 2021).

Your petition must contain no fewer than 30 names of registered voters in the City of Montpelier. A voter shall not sign more petitions than the number of candidates to be elected for each individual office.

If there is competition for any office, candidates will appear in alphabetical order by last name.

The deadline for petitions is
 May 21, 2017 (as this is a Sunday, the drop box in the rear of City Hall may be used).

If you raise or spend $500 or more, open a campaign bank account, or make a mass media expenditure of $500 or more, campaign finance filings are
