New Scotland

As the COVID-19 pandemic begins to starve municipal budgets of sales-tax revenue, mobile carriers are also looking for their pound of flesh.

In New Scotland, a 12-unit apartment building is proposed at the site of an already-converted school.

Tricia Putman said she’s running for school board because she feels these are unprecedented times, and she’s hoping with her background and experience as a certified public accountant that she can help navigate the district through such an extraordinary moment.

A first-time candidate, Argi O’Leary said it’s “pretty simple” why she’s running: She thinks school board membership is one of the most meaningful and important ways she can serve her community. 

Timothy Kremer said his qualifications for school board come from serving and advocating on behalf of school boards since 1979. Kremer is the former executive director of the New York State School Boards Association, a job he held for 21 years. He previously spent 19 years at the Ohio School Boards Association.

Four candidates are running for three seats on the Voorheesville School Board this year. 

For 2020-21, the Voorheesville Public Library is proposing a $1.35 million budget, an increase of nearly 7 percent from this year.

Two New Scotland residents are dead after an apparent murder-suicide.

Mr. Livingston died Friday, May 15, 2020. He was 93.
