On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, there will be an important school board election for the Suffern Central School District.
As the mayors of many of the villages within the district, we share a common belief in a simple idea: Our schools should put the needs of our kids first. And so together, we are supporting three candidates who have put that idea — Kids First — at the heart of their campaigns.
Donald Cairns, Angus Mackenzie and Melissa Reimer are running for school board to improve our schools for all students – so that our teachers can educate and nurture the leaders of tomorrow.
We’ve had the opportunity to get to know them, and we are impressed by their commitment to the community. We hope that you will join us in supporting them.
We ask you to go out and vote on May 15, 2018 at the Suffern Central School Board Election — and help us support our children and community.
Mayor Edward Markunas, Village of Suffern
Mayor Philip Gigante, Village of Airmont
