Six candidates will seek three seats on the Ann Arbor Board of Education in the June general election.
The six filed petitions before Monday’s deadline. They are:
• Joseph Bugajski, 30, of 3090 Golfside,; supervisor at Ford Motor Co., Dearborn. He is chairman of a group trying to establish an Open Elementary School in the district.
• Ivan Glusac, 49, of 1921 Mershon; instructor, Washtenaw Community College.
• Stanley King, 43, of 1970 Alhambra; financial executive for Kellogg Co., Battle Creek . He is vice president of the PTO council and was active In the Dicken School controversy last year.
• Martha Krehbiel, 53, of 2940 Provincial; homemaker. She is active in church and community groups.
• Eunice Royster, 31, of 1441 Natalie Lane; assistant director, University of Michigan’s Opportunity Program.
• Ingrid Sheldon. 37, of 3464 Yellowstone Dr.; part-time bookkeeper, homemaker. Active in the local Republican Party, she was the campaign manager in 1980 of current board member Wendy Raeder. She’s also the wife of outgoing Republican City Councilman Clifford Sheldon.
Ideologically, the six candidates seem evenly divided. Apparently lining up in the conservative camp are Glusac, King and Sheldon, while Bugajski, Krehbiel and Royster will probably get most of their support from the liberal community.
Leaving the board are three persons generally considered liberals: Kathleen Dannemiller, John Powell and Lana Pollack.
The election is on June 14. All terms are for three years. If a candidate wants to withdraw from the race, he must submit a written statement to the secretary of the board by 4 p.m., April 15.
