The Sudbury Public Schools Committee will have two new faces next school year as incumbents Jeffrey Beeler and Susan Iuliano will not seek re-election.
Three residents pulled papers to run for those seats, but Sudbury Patch found out Thursday night the race will be uncontested.
In an email sent to Sudbury Patch, Scott Nassa said he has decided not to run for SPS Committee.
"While I did pull papers for SPS I did not hand them in and am not running," he said. "I just have too many other things going on this year to commit to a campaign."
The other residents who pulled papers were Robert Armour of 21 Brookside Farm Lane and Lucie St. George of 752 Concord Road.
"Even though there are two open seats which will now be uncontested, I didn't want to put my name on the ballot unless I could have given 100 percent," Nassa said.
The deadline to pull papers was Feb. 3. The deadline to return nomination papers with signatures was Feb. 7. The deadline to withdraw candidacy is Feb. 23. Town election is March 26.
In an email sent to Sudbury Patch, Iuliano said: "I have decided not to run for a fourth term so I can focus on other endeavors, but I have truly enjoyed my time on the School Committee. I appreciate the many good people — staff, parents, committee members, and others in our community — who work hard to to ensure that we have excellent schools in Sudbury."
Beeler said he would comment at a later date.
