The Roanoke City Council received four additional candidates for available school board seats after continuing the application process last month, bringing the applicant pool to eight people.
Applications for the two school board seats with expiring terms and the unexpired term of board Chairman David Carson, who plans to step down in June, were due Friday.
City Council Clerk Stephanie Moon said the four additional applicants are Stewart Barnes, the Rev. Tim Harvey, Williams Hopkins and Gloria Manns.
The four new candidates, as well as two other candidates who have not yet been interviewed, will be questioned by council members May 20. The city council opted last month to consider one pool of candidates for the three spots and will ask contenders whether they wish to be considered for an entire term or the year left on Carson’s term.
Carson was recently elected by state legislators to become a circuit court judge and is not legally permitted to remain on the board once he takes the bench in July. The terms of board members Annette Lewis and Suzanne Moore are set to expire at the end of June. Both are seeking reappointment.
Candidates Mary Nash and Charles Meidlinger already had applied. Nash has been publicly interviewed along with Lewis.
