WESTPORT, Conn. -- The Westport Board of Education is seeking to fill a seat soon to be left open when Trustee Brett Aronow resigns, according to a statement from the school district.

According to the board, anyone interested in the position must:

  • Be a registered Democrat.
  • Be willing to be interviewed separately by the Democratic Town Committee and the Board of Education.
  • Be willing to serve and attend board meetings immediately upon appointment.
