Letters to the editor from June 5 issue

At least four years it’s looked this bad,

That poor old house that looks so sad.

Bianchi thanks community for good school board race

To the Skaneateles Central School District community:

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate returning school board member Thomas Lambdin and new board members Geralyn Huba and Margaret Usdansky in their election to the school board. I also want to recognize Rhonda Fabrizio for a good race.

Thank you to the current superintendent Dr. Judith C. Pastel, Dale Bates, assistant superintendent, and Dot Pitman for their encouragement to all the candidates. I want to recognize the current board members for their assistance in educating the community on important school issues.

An addidional thank you to Kristi Peterson, Elaine Palmer, Heather Carroll and Christina Pietropaoli for organizing the Meet the Candidates Night and to principal Gary Gerst and staff for hosting the event at the Waterman School. This is an important event for the candidates, and most importantly, the community for exchange of ideas.

Thank you to the Skaneateles Journal and the Skaneateles Press for their fair coverage of the election and the ongoing education of the public on important issue.

Finally, I want to thank those who signed my petition and those who voted for me.

As a long-time educator, I will continue to follow the direction of our school district and hope to find an opportunity to serve our community.

Candidate for School Board

Capital project will cause tax spike

To the editor:

Voters of the Skaneateles Central School District will vote on June 11 on a $22.7 million bond issue for repairs and renovations, three weeks after passing a $30.1 million annual budget for the next year.

Are all the projects proposed in this bond issue essential? Is it necessary to build a new middle school gymnasium for $5.5 million? If locker rooms and restrooms need repair, could they be renovated instead of building a new gymnasium?
