Include the public in the process of filling the vacant board seat!

On May 15, 2012, the voters of the Beekmantown Central School District sent a strong message. The voters ousted 2 incumbent Board members. Now that there is a vacancy on the Board of Education, the Board President and some of the Board members are trying to reinstate one of the ousted (former) Board members. The Board should not have the opportunity to overturn the voters’ wishes. Determining the composition of the Board of Education is supposedĀ to be a democratic process! The public should be informed to determine their interest in filling the position if the seat must be filled and an election is not affordable. Do not reinstate one of the ousted (former) Board members for the vacant position!

Please ask for a democratic process by signing our petition. Your signed petition will automatically be emailed to all Board of Education members.
