Two members of the South Huntington Board of Education are running unopposed in the May 21 election.

Nicholas Ciappetta, the board president, who is seeking his sixth three-year term, and Laura Carey, the vice president who is seeking her third elected term after being appointed to the board seven years ago, are on the ballot.

Also on the ballot will be the district’s $173 million budget, an increase from this year’s budget of $170 million. The increase keeps the budget within the state-mandated tax cap. The budget includes $225,000 for the purchase of new propane-fueled buses, and $550,000 for transfer to capital projects.

A public hearing on the budget  is set for Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the district offices at 60 Weston St., Huntington Station.

Voting runs from 3-10 p.m. May 21 at Walt Whitman High School.
