3 challengers, 3 incumbents in race for Claymont Board of Education

Note: This story has been updated to add the names of two of Austin Beckley’s relatives who work for the Claymont City Schools. The information was not supplied with the candidate’s Sept. 14 reply to a questionnaire from the newspaper. He gave the names Thursday, after the story appeared in print. He explained the initial omission by email, writing, “They are not teachers or in any Union. I thought the question was regards to teaching. Sorry.” His first response to the question, “Do you have any relatives who work for the district?” was “no.”  

DENNISON — Six candidates are seeking three positions on the Claymont Board of Education in the Nov. 2 general election.

The challengers are Cyndy Host, Nikita M. Richardson and Michelle K. Wolf. Incumbents are Austin Beckley, Lois Grandison and Michelle Sproul.
