Does anyone have a problem with relatives of school district employees running for a vacant seat on the board? It seems these people already have an agenda to increase spending thru raising taxes on the home owners while their relatives benefit from the increased spending.

You people are funny! The whole thing is so corrupt it is pathetic! I watched Leonard Summa (then a board member) go into the voting machines and instruct people how to vote. When I questioned him directly it was pin drop time at strough. Jeff Simons wants, helps and has all his cronies on the board do he can get his adgenda passed. Ask a teacher and administrator off the record and see what thru will say! If they tell the truth you will be in shock !

Are you referring to the RFA Principal's wife running for school board? How can that even be a possibility?

I'm talking about Mike Stamboly's (ath. director) wife picking up a petition to run. Did you see in the Sentinel 2 weeks ago of Simons' wish list of projects, esp. those regarding athletic fields at all schools? Whats that got to do with learning?

I used to have the cigarette vending machine contract at the old RFA. I've been trying to get several machines into the cafeteria but I can't even get the school to respond. The machines make sense since it saves the student time if they don't have to leave school to by cigarettes.

I hope these candidates like Benson and Stamboly understand that IF they win BOE seats, they CANNOT vote for any matters having to do with their husband's positions. Matters concerning RFA or anything having to do with althletics are off the table. They must obstain. Why waste your vote on these two???

I don't agree that Benson and Stamboly's wife are able to run! The teacher running is retiring so I am ok with that. The rest are independent of any personal relationship. I also do not think Marcus campos should run, and certainly should not win. He is a recent graduate and not the polite, young man everyone thinks he is. He was the type to speak nicely to you while he stabbed the knife in your back. DO NOT VOTE FOR MARCUS CAMPOS. Two people who are very strong and verbal against the system with Jeff are ANNA JOHNSON and DICK HITCHINGS. They intend to make Jeff answer up and question all decisions made...including raises and his henchmen. VOTE PEOPLE. Make your dissatisfaction heard through voting for a change and NO ON THE BUDGET!

Isn't Anna Johnson related to Frank C? No vote there.

I think we all can agree we need a big change for the better of our community. Reidel needs to be out. We have good candidates running,however some may be sketchy. I would not vote for the ADs spouse who have been known to have their own agendas or a young college student. We need new voices on the school board who will fight for our well being of our students. Lets make a change Romans.

Yeah..I know its America. And its these candidates who have a "taxpayer be damned" mentality when it comes to spending. And its all under the guise of "our children's future". These bastards are no more concerned about our kids future than chewing gum on their shoe. Vote against these suckers!!!

Our Superintendent has failed in our test scores (what 389 out of 422 in rankings), he has failed with his bullying initiatives (or lack thereof), he has failed fiscally (how the heck do we have a deficit just like that overnight when he gave raises to three administrators making $112,000 plus only after 1 year of service), he has failed in having a direct plan for renovations and school closings (its Gansevoort, no Fort, no maybe Joy, we will renovate Strough, move the kids possibly to the Deaf School, no maybe to Staley, move the kids from Staley back to elementary schools or the 6th to Strough, no maybe we will renovate Bellamy and turn it into a massive unruly elementary and then we will overcrowd and discuss portable classrooms and arts on carts, oh no maybe we will put another $100,000 into the "New" RFA that we seem to have absolutely no warranties on anything for) get the picture...no plans, no real vision, no direction. Our Superintendent who is granted a pay raise every for a good job by a Board of Education that act more like scared sheep than true leaders need to wake up. This so called leader leads through scare tactics, intimidation, and false facts and empty promises. Forget Stamboly's wife she is running for her husband who has his tail between his legs for wrongfully terminating the football coach. Which by the way is unresolved and my boys still have no idea what is going on and want to get back to work with coach. Forget Amy Benson, her husband is the RFA principal. Look at the pubic paying website her husband and Jeff Simons make $135,000 and $155,000 plus full benefits, shall I dare say conflict of interest???? Forget Johnson if she is related to our wonderful Human Resources guru Constabile who also makes $100,000 (Stamboly makes over $100,000). We need leaders elected to who will turn this sinking ship around. I am glad to see John Leonard pick up a petition, a lawyer trained to question, question, question. Favata is a spite fire she will rock the boat. Hitchings is outspoken and will challenge Jeff. Campos is young and ambitious, all these last few are better than Riedel. Vote Vote Vote
