Paul Brathwaite, a Senior School Lunch Worker vying to unseat Mr. Francois, and Anthony Gordon, a Parent Coordinator running against Executive Vice President Donald Nesbit, say that their slate, Team Quiet Storm, has been denied a slate box on the ballots, which were set to be mailed out “on or about” Sept. 3.
