Erin Gill, current chair of the Falls Church School Board, announced to the News-Press this week that she will not seek a second four-year term in this November’s election. On the other hand, Laura Taddeucci Downs has completed her filing with the City’s registrar to be on the ballot.

With 125 signatures of registered voters in Falls Church required by a June 11 deadline to run for the F.C.
