Saugerties budget and props pass easily; Gage replaces Schirmer on school board

The $62.4-million budget passed with nearly 70 percent of the vote; propositions to establish a reserve fund for future projects and construct a greenhouse also passed easily. Incumbents Krista Barringer and Damion Ferraro were reelected along with Susan Gage, formerly the district’s director of special education. Incumbent Charles Schirmer and challenger Alex Rappoport came up short.
