DERRY — The filing period ends Jan. 31 for those interested in signing up to run for open town and school district positions.

Derry voters will cast ballots on March 10 for town and school elected officials as well as school budget and warrant articles. The town budget is approved in the spring by Town Council.

On the town side, there are two open positions on the Town Council, one three-year term for Councilor-at-Large and a District 3 Council job. Incumbent councilors are Joshua Bourdon and Neil Wetherbee, respectively.

As of Monday morning, both Bourdon and Wetherbee signed on to run for another term.

Also in Derry, a two-year town moderator job is up for election in March with Christina Guilford signing on so far to run for the job. Incumbent moderator Mary Till said she will not seek another term.

Other positions up for election in Derry include Derry Public Library Trustee, three positions for three-year terms; Taylor Library Trustee, two open positions for three-year terms, and Supervisor of the Checklist, six-year term.

Incumbent Valerie Roche signed up to run for a Derry Public Library trustee job as of early this week.

On Derry’s school side, there are two open school board seats, each for three years. Incumbents are Paul Lutz and Dan McKenna. McKenna said he would not seek another term, but Lutz will run again for another three years. Also hoping to win a school board seat are Derick Anderson and Jessica Ring.

School board applications are available at or at the administration office at 18 South Main St. in Derry. For town positions, people can sign up at the town clerk's office at the Derry Municipal Center.
