THREE CANDIDATES TO VIE FOR TWO SEATS IN THIS YEAR'S SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION
April 21, 2014 -- With two seats up for grabs, three residents met Monday's 5 pm deadline for submitting petitions to run as candidates in the North Shore Schools Board of Education Trustees Election to be held on Tuesday, May 20. They are Joanna Commander of Glen Head, Lara Gonzalez of Sea Cliff, and Rob Mazzella of Glen Head.
The public will have the opportunity to learn about the candidates' backgrounds, qualifications, and positions on issues at a Meet the Candidates forum to be held at the North Shore High School on Thursday, April 24, at 8 pm.
Incumbent School Board Trustees Amy Beyer, who has been on the Board since 2002, and Tom Knierim, who has served for three years, have chosen to not seek re-election. The board has seen considerable turnover in recent years. When the new members are sworn in in July, only one of the seven Trustees, Board President Herman Berliner, will have been on the board for more than one term.
On May 20, in addition to the Trustees election, residents will also have the opportunity to vote on the 2014-15 school budget of $95,850,329 - a l.98% rise over 2013-14; and a tax levy of 87,886,066 - an increase of 1.5% over this year.
(Correction - An earlier version of the article stated that Amy Beyer has served on the Board of Education since 2005. She has in fact served since 2002.)
