Rockland election slate grows

By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

ROCKLAND, Maine — A Rockland woman is seeking a seat on the regional school board, adding to the list of people seeking local seats.

Nancy Jeffers of Tea Street took out nomination papers Friday for a seat on the Regional School Unit 13 Board.

Jeffers served on the School Administrative District 5 board, first being appointed to a vacancy in 2005 and then winning a full term in 2006. SADs 5 and 50 merged in 2009 into RSU 13.

Rockland has five seats on the 12-member RSU 13 board, which covers Rockland, Thomaston, St. George, Owls Head, South Thomaston and Cushing.

There are two Rockland seats up for election on Nov. 6. The seats are held by board Chairwoman Esther Kilgour and board member Brian Messing.

Kilgour took out papers last week. Messing said he would take out papers but was unsure whether he would file them once he had collected the required signatures of 100 registered Rockland voters.

In the race for one City Council seat, Mayor Brian Harden has taken out papers seeking an unprecedented fifth consecutive three-year term on the council. One other person, Limerock Inn co-owner Frank Isganitis, has also taken out papers for the seat.

The deadline for candidates to file to make the ballot is Sept. 24.
