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. 

Although still fairly preliminary, New Scotland residents without access to high-speed broadband now have an option.  

The village of Voorheesville’s budget for next year is down but residents will see an increase in their water bills.

The Voorheesville School Board approved a $26 million spending plan for the 2020-21 school year, which comes with a 3.14-percent levy increase — if voters approve it.
