Candidates announced for New Paltz School Board

Six candidates will be on the ballot for the May 15, 2018 School Board election in New Paltz. There are three open seats. Incumbents Brian Cournoyer and Michael O’Donnell are both seeking reelection, and voters will have to weigh their past performance against the promise of newcomers Diana Armstead, Joe Garcia, Meghan Goodnow and Glenn LaPolt. Alison Easton is not seeking reelection.

Voters will also be weighing in on the 2018-2019 budget proposal of $61,270,000, which will raise the tax levy 3.2% if just a simple majority vote in favor, as it’s exactly at this year’s tax cap. A separate measure to purchase six new school buses would add $480,000 in spending if approved, with a commensurate increase in taxes.

    How about we just stay in the budget instead of raising the taxes every year. Even when they get extra money they still raise the taxes. When will it stop when we all leave because we cant afford to pay these high taxes? This is crazy.
