(Continued)

Approving the union contract is a question on all the school districts warrants in all the school districts included in SAU 21, which includes Hampton Falls, North Hampton, South Hampton, as well as Seabrook and Winnacunnet. For teachers to get their contracts ratified and their raises, every town in SAU 21 must approved the new contract, Hickey said.

Winnacunnet candidates

Voters will elect two members of the Winnacunnet School Board in March, one each for Hampton Falls and Seabrook, and voters from all towns sending students to WHS will vote in both races.

Running for a three-year term to represent Seabrook on the board are Clint Allen Felch and Frances Henderson. There is no incumbent in this race; the current Seabrook member of the Winnacunnet board, Maria Brown, is not running for re-election.

The race for the three-year Hampton Falls seat includes David Gandt and Wayne Skoglund, the incumbent.

Three other races are on the ballot, but all three are uncontested. For the Hampton Falls seat on the school budget committee is incumbent Donald Janik, and for Seabrook, incumbent Bruce Casassa.

Robert Cushing is the only candidate running for the position of Winnacunnet School District moderator.

Voters in Seabrook head to the polls on Tuesday, March 11, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to cast their ballots on the town warrant, Seabrook School District Warrant and the Winnacunnet School District Warrant.

Voters are reminded that according to state law, they must present a photo ID at the polls to vote.

Those who are not yet registered to vote may do so at the town clerk’s office or at the polls on election day. To register to vote, a photo ID, proof of age and residency are required.
