Stanton tops Lake Placid school board

LAKE PLACID - The election results are in for the Lake Placid Central School District school board. A delay was caused by a faulty voting machine on election night Tuesday, May 20.

Enzo Villani, Camelia Sheridan and Particia Stanton of Lake Placid have won three-year terms on the board. Stanton claimed 436 votes, Sheridan received 406 votes and Enzo got 366.

They replace Phil Baumbach, Herb Stoerr and Jennifer Tufano, who did not seek re-election.

Stanton, the top vote-getter, will be seated on the board immediately to fill in for Tufano. The other two winning candidates, Villani and Sheridan, will be sworn in after Baumbach and Stoerr's terms expire at the end of June.

The results for the election were later counted by hand by school district staff.

"First, we want to take this opportunity to thank Phil, Herb, and Jenn for their service to the district," Superintendent Roger Catania wrote in a press release. "We also want to welcome Pat, Cammy, and Enzo to the Board and look forward to working with them in the future."

The $17.6 million budget for the district was approved, increasing the tax levy by 2 percent. The budget received 81 percent support. Two ballot measures also passed, giving $57,000 to the district to purchase three school buses and $13,000 to the E.M. Cooper Memorial Public Library in Wilmington.

Exit poll results for a veteran tax exemption straw vote will be released and discussed at a board meeting.
