How To File A School Board Candidate Petition


Voting for two Great Neck Public Schools Board of Education trustee positions will be held on Tuesday, May 16. Qualified district residents who wish to run for a board trustee position must pick up candidate petitions from District Clerk Michele Domanick in the Phipps Administration Building at 345 Lakeville Rd. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on school days. By law, completed petitions must be returned to Domanick no later than Monday, April 17, by 5 p.m.

Although schools are closed on April 17, Domanick will be at the building until 5 p.m. to receive signed petitions. Domanick will conduct the lottery for the ballot position on Tuesday, April 18, at 10 a.m.

When picking up a petition, candidates will need to indicate the board seat they are seeking—either that of Susan Healy or Lawrence Gross. Healy is seeking reelection; Gross is not. In addition to the petition, Domanick will give potential candidates an informational material packet that explains the eligibility requirements to run for the board as well as for those who sign petitions. For more information, call 516-441-4020.
