The $22.3 million budget, three propositions, and a new board member were all given wide margins in a low turnout.
The two top vote-getters on Tuesday, Christine Hayes and Seema Rivera, are friends and sister graduates of Guilderland.
David Gibson, prior president of the Voorheesville School Board
Marie Wiles, superintendent, Guilderland Central School District
Spencer Sisson, owner of Spencer Insurance Agency, Slingerlands
School board candidates — one in Voorheesville and one in Guilderland — have decided not to run in the May 19 elections; both had submitted valid petitions by the April 20 deadline.
To the Editor:
This is a letter to Berne-Knox-Westerlo community residents.
Reluctant to comment on whether she supported the $22.3 million budget put forward by the school board for next year, Lillian Sisson-Chrysler said she thinks the district is well funded.
Between two candidates for two school board seats, the person with the most votes will fill a four-year term, and the person with the second most will take a three-year position.
Two seats are open on the school board here. Current board member Doreen Saia said that she will run, again. Nominating petitions are due in the district office April 20.
