school board

At its May 23 meeting, several Guilderland school board members did raise questions about whether incidents from Horan’s campaign violated regulations.

Although graduation is not until Saturday, many goodbyes were said at Berne-Knox-Westerlo’s campus on Monday night. 

Newly elected board member Helen Lounsbury called for more public input at an upcoming organizational meeting. Other members questioned how involved the public should be in decisions by the board members it elected.

Voorheesville results

Just over 500 voters turned out to pass the school and library budgets in Voorheesville and fill three uncontested board seats.

Kimberly Lovell and Nathan Elble are incumbents. Helen Lounsbury, Martin Szinger, and Randy Bashwinger are challengers. Candidates were asked about the school budget, the capital project, and other issues facing the district in the coming school year.

A long-time board member, C. James Coffin, and a newcomer, Robert Samson, are guaranteed seats on the Voorheesville School Board as no one else is in the running.

GUILDERLAND — Three incumbents and two challengers are running for three seats on Guilderland’s board of education.

The $35,000 to repair Guilderland’s 1800s cobblestone schoolhouse that was originally included in the superintendent’s draft budget has brought heated discussion.

The Berne-Knox-Westerlo School District received $100,000 more in state aid than it had budgeted for. After a debate over whether to use all the funds to reduce taxes, the board of education agreed on a 50-50 split between the tax levy and the district fund balance.

BERNE — There are three seats up for election on the Berne-Knox-Westerlo School Board, and so far, at least three candidates — two incumbents and a former long-time board member — have confirmed that they are running.
