Voters in Charlottesville and parts of Albemarle County will have a chance Tuesday to weigh in on who sits on their locality’s school board.
In Albemarle, Mary McIntyre and Katrina Callsen — both with teaching backgrounds — are running for the open Rio District seat. Current Rio representative Pam Moynihan chose not to run for a fifth term.
And in the south side of the county, Graham Paige, a lifelong Esmont resident, is running for a second term representing the Samuel Miller District. Julian Waters, a recent Western Albemarle High School graduate, is challenging.
The Jack Jouett District seat held by Kate Acuff, the board’s chairwoman, is on the ballot, but she is unopposed.
In Charlottesville, three of the seven at-large seats are up for grabs. Juandiego Wade and Leah Puryear have opted to seek another term, while Ned Michie did not seek re-election.
Lisa Larson-Torres, a physical therapist and parent of Charlottesville High School student, is the only newcomer running.
