To the editor:
The Lake Placid school board will hold its budget vote and school board election May 15, and YOU can make a difference. There are three new candidates running for three positions.
Our present board needs a strong push, as it has failed to effectively lead. Many, many people have said to me, "We need to get rid of all present members of the school board." Legally, we cannot do that, but we can start the process this year by by electing the three new candidates.
The candidates are Mary Dietrich, who had more than 30 years of teaching in the Lake Placid school system, Patricia Gallagher, who has children in the school and has attended the many school board meetings, and Martha Stahl, who has a child in the school for the first time and has experience with policy and planning.
All three candidates are eager to bring fresh viewpoints. These candidates are intelligent, willing to speak out at meetings and will have the students and community foremost in their minds.
Please join me May 15 and vote for Mary Dietrich, Patricia Gallagher and Martha Stahl.
Former Lake Placid school board member,
teacher and student
