BEDFORD, N.Y.-- The Bedford Central School Board will interview three prospective candidates looking to fill one vacancy on the school board on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Bedford Corners resident Brian Sheerin, Mount Kisco resident Edward Reder and Pound Ridge resident Joe Malichio will be interviewed at The Little Theater in the Fox Lane Middle School.
The interviews will be moderated by the League of Women Voters while the district will make copies of candidates' applications at the meeting and will accept public comment until Sept. 20.
The board is expected to pick a replacement on Sept. 25. The board is filling the vacancy left by Lee Goldstein, who resigned because her family is moving to Connecticut.
There will be a special election for the seat on May 20. Goldstein was elected to the school board in 2012; her three-year term expires June 30, 2015.
Susan Wollin, president of the school board, said she is confident the process will choose a worthy candidate.
This is the third time the board has filled a vacancy during Wollin's tenure.
"It's very similar to the process we've used in the past," Wollin said. "We hope to appoint somebody based on the outcome of the meetings."
Wollin said she was pleased to have three candidates applying for the position.
“Our school district is fortunate to have district residents willing to volunteer on behalf of our school district," Wollin said.
The board last filled a vacancy in 2011 when Mark Chernis resigned to avoid a conflict of interest with his employer and the district.
The Bedford Central School District is comprised of the towns of Bedford, Pound Ridge and Mount Kisco.
