Milford School Committee incumbent Christine Boyle announced Monday she will not be seeking a third term.

In an emailed message, Boyle said she was proud of the work accomplished by the School Committee and administration over the past six years, "and very grateful to the voters of Milford for giving me the opportunity to serve the town in this capacity."

Boyle holds a Ph.D. and is employed as a research scientist at Worcester State University.

On the committee, she was an advocate for Advanced Placement courses, academic programs and, most recently, was among the two members who took a public stance against the proposed Foxwoods Massachusetts casino, which later failed by a 2-1 margin at a public vote.

Three people have declared candidacies so far for the available two seats on the seven-member committee. Incumbent Robert Lanzetta has not taken out papers but has not said publicly as yet whether he intends to seek a second term.

The following residents, all newcomers to contested political races, have announced their candidacies: Joe Callery, a father of two and a Milton Cat supervisor, John Erickson, the town's building commissioner, and Jennifer Parson, a mother of two and an elementary school principal

Residents can pull nomination papers through Feb. 7.
