Slate of Candidates for LU Board of Directors Click on any candidate’s name below to review their Board application. Asterisks*** next to the name signify that this candidate is already current Board member running for re-election. This year’s election is for the 6 “by ward” seats on the Board. These seats exist to ensure all three City neighborhoods (or “wards”) that comprise Lawrenceville have at least two current residents represented on our Board. Candidates who appear in bold and with asterisks are currently on the LU Board of Directors and running for re-election.

Candidates for 6th Ward (Lower Lawrenceville) – choose two

Candidates for 9th Ward (Central Lawrenceville) – choose two

Candidates for 10th Ward (Upper Lawrenceville) – choose two

Vote for candidates using THIS FORM.


  • What is the Board? The Board of Directors is the governing body of LU. These volunteers set the strategic direction of the organization, evaluate the performance of the Executive Director, and make decisions about key positions.
  • How is the Board elected? LU’s Board of Directors are elected through a democratic process. Each year, all eligible candidates are put on a slate and elected by our membership.
  • Who is eligible to be an LU member? Any member in good standing above the age of 18 who resides in Lawrenceville, or has resided in Lawrenceville for more than 365 days in the last 15 years, and has been an LU member since at least March 1st.
  • What Board positions are available: There are two kinds of Board positions: by-ward seats (which are based on each neighborhood to ensure geographic diversity of the Board) and at-large seats (which are open to any eligible member). Each Board member serves a 2-year term and elections are staggered, so roughly half of our Board seats are up for election each year. Six (6) by-ward seats are up for election in 2023. There are 8 candidates (including 5 current Board members running for re-election) on the current slate.
