With 2011 being an election year for five Centennial School Board members, some announced that they would not run for reelection.

Board member Thomas Hazel addressed the board and the public at the board meeting Feb. 8, announcing that his spot will be up for grabs come November.

Hazel is a resident of Region III of the school district, which means that anyone who lives in the part of Warminster west of York Road as well as in the speedway part of Warminster — between York, Street and County Line roads, and the SEPTA Line — can run for his spot.

Board Vice President Thomas Reinbooth made a similar announcement at the previous board meeting Jan. 25, announcing his step-down from the board at the end of this year.

Reinbooth’s departure will allow residents of Region II of the school district — the entire Borough of Ivyland as well as the part of Warminster east of York Road — run for his spot.

“You will be terribly missed,” board member Jane Lynch said after Reinbooth’s announcement. “You have done an excellent job and I know you will continue to do an excellent job till the end of your term. I am so sorry you are not rerunning.”

Board President Andrew Pollock also expressed his regret about Reinbooth’s departure.

“You have been an outstanding board member. You have helped us greatly especially in your expertise in finance. I will really think that the board is loosing a very good person.”

A spot for residents of Region I, which includes all of Upper Southampton Township, will also be available this fall as board member Cynthia Mueller announced late last year that she would not run for re-election.

The Centennial School Board is composed of nine district residents, who each serve unpaid terms of four years. Board member Mark Miller of Region I and Pollack of Region II will face re-election this fall.
