And every other candidate has so far? I see an answer for everything. I just sit back and watch them roll.

Have you looked into who's running. There are a gaggle of individuals running with intelligence and common sense. So why is her battle an uphill one? Many others have EXPERIENCE!!!

She's not being picked on. Her election hopes are seriously an uphill battle.

Yes but lets be clear on where they stand were you for or against the merger put it out their, I dont want someone on the board to make it hard to get things done. I want the peoples voice to go forward, not to have misinformed people or people to grind an ax in the process, just be honest put out your opionion, I will vote on merit I just want the truth. Be honest if you have nothing to hide.
I am for the merger, however, it is not my place or anyone else's to take the stand that we don't want a "dissenter" on the Board. They have just as much right to be on there than anyone else.

Let the voters decide and leave it at that. What are we looking for, otherwise --- a bunch of sheeple that wait for a sheepherder to lead them wherever they want them to go?

People need to agree to disagree or else we'll be in lousy shape going forward ---- no matter what the subject matter.

Very Touching...I'm playing God Bless America right now.
With this being a democracy and all, let's see how many votes Ms.(axe to grind) Lori Sementilli and the others (who the hell are they) gather. My guess is their returns will be dismal.
The No voter's running for the BOE are Lori Sementilli, Fred Schell, Hans Hendrix, Robert Berger, Orlo Burch.
Touch this. Don't worry about your proverbial axes. The voters decided on the merger ---- let them decide again who they want on the Board. Go put your one vote in and let the others speak with their vote just like you are here with your words. If these people you don't want on the Board don't get the votes, then your own personal worries are a moot point. If they do get voted in, we'll all be prepared to hear your whining .

Hey Bozo, people are sharing information and their opinions. That's part of the process. The Sementilli grudge thing is right on the money. Lori created a piss poor relationship between the Mohawk BOE and the teaches union, all common knowledge in Mohawk.

As for the other 4 no voter's, in the three year merger process they were nowhere to be found. Now they pop-up wanting to be BOE members. I don't think so.

Hey old wise one, it seems you missed the meeting last night. The question of how they voted was asked and answered.

So basically you only want to add people on the board that will say YES to everything and never challenge or question any proposals? Isn't that how you people are in the situations you are in today? Sounds like you just don't want anyone who might have a differing opinion. That doesn't sound democratic to me.
Ok well democracy is democracy but if people were not for the merger and they have an axe to grind or not going to be pro kids pro school pro merger how they feel about moving forward is a problem no matter their reason, small school, school name or pride..... The voters will determine the board but dont hide your reasoning for running or telling how you felt or feel now. Thats all be honest.

If we are all about Democracy, then an ideal makeup of the BOE would be about 4-5 pro merger members and 2-3 non merger. This is based on the outcome of the merger vote being approximatelt 2 to 1 in favor. Democracy is about representation of ALL not just the majority. The majority will get its way but the minority will be heard!

. I hope the minority does get heard because Mohawk will not be heard. I hope they are ready for that. The small community with a lot of pride is going to be swallowed right up. I dare say you will be lucky if 1 BOE member will be from Mohawk.

With the Merger it is not Ilion, Mohawk school districts but Ilion- Mohawk. Mohawk maintained ALL of the school Structures( Jarvis and Fisher), Ilion looses one Remington.How is this not fair and equitable or "not being heard"?
The next step should be municipal government merger. This will complete the process and eliminate us and them mentalities.

If you look back historically, at one time we were all just part of the Township of German Flats and there were no villages of Mohawk and Ilon. Students these days have bigger problems that what their school is named. Let's stay focused on what we can do to help them out.

Sounds like many in this forum including Cosimo want to vote for 'yes' men (or women). And I'm not talking about how these candidates voted. I will be sure to vote for the 'no' people who some kind posters were nice enough to mention because at least they stood for their beliefs and would not be pushed to vote yes. This trait is much more important than being pressured into voting for whatever crazy plan has been popularized by the 'real person in charge'. And we all know who that is... The new 'old superintendent' who will now get the raise he was after for running a larger school, as was predicted by many no voters. He will be the new super hands down because although it's not a contractual obligation to vote him in, it is a contractual obligation to keep paying him and giving him benefits for the remainder of his contract whether he becomes the new super or not. Why pay twice to a new super and to the previous super who still is entitled to his existing contract. It's a no brainer that he will be voted in, just as he planned all along. Watch and see.

Remember the entire process started when Mohawk came to Ilion and asked for a merger. The same as the other two districts came and asked to be part of the process. Cos went to no one you uninformed jerk.
