School budget, election results

In local school board budget votes and elections, all school budgets passed, with a high voter turnout, overall. All local budgets passed and several new members were elected to boards, with some unexpected results. The following results appeared on The Sun’s website on May 21, but were unable to be compiled in time for that print issue.


The Frontier district budget passed, which cuts 23 positions. That number can be lessened with retirements. The tax levy will increase to 3.58 percent, for a budget of $74.23 million. Board candidate David Podkulski, with 1,213 votes, and incumbent Janet Plarr, with 1,089 votes, won the two board seats. Incumbent Jack Chiappone lost, with 935 votes.


Eden’s budget passed, for a 1.78 percent tax levy and a $26.4 million budget. No additional information was available, by press time.


Cameron Hall, with 2,163 votes, and Thomas Flynn, with 2,050 votes, captured the two board seats in a contentious six-person race. Candy Ditkowski garnered 1,051 votes, Kevin Steffan took home 792 votes, Andrew Loeb got 356 and Gary Klumpp took 351.

The budget was approved, 2,383 to 1,186. The budget cuts 16.6 full-time positions, eliminates intramural sports, cuts a language and increases the tax levy to 4.2 percent. The budget totals $62.43 million.

Lake Shore

The budget passed 510 to 199 and the vehicle referendum passed 481 to 226. For two open board seats, Dyan Scritchfield, with 517 votes, and Carla Thompson, with 561, will be on the board for three-year terms.

North Collins

A total of 219 voters voted “yes” on Proposition 1 ( school budget), with 58 voting no, which enabled the budget to pass. Proposition 2, for two buses and one van, passed with 162 yes votes. Mark Snow was re-elected to a five-year term. He was running for that position unopposed.
