Saratoga Springs City School District Candidate Forum

The Saratoga Unites candidate forum for Saratoga Springs City School District candidates was a great success!  The five candidates able to attend, Natalya Lakhtakia, John Brueggemann, Heather Meyer Reynolds, Shaun Wiggins, and Ed Cubanski, responded to questions on a variety of topics.  It’s clear, that while this year’s race has been promoted mostly around the question of increasing armed resources in our schools, that the community has a much larger number of concerns and interests to ensure a quality education in an everyday safe school environment.

Check out the variety of issues reflected in the questions submitted for our candidates – and make sure to be encouraging dialogue with the candidates on all of these topics!

Forum Question List 041019
We urge all voters registered in the school district to evaluate the candidates across a wide range of issues – and if you’re interested in learning more about everyday safety, check out a new Facebook group dedicated to that topic, Saratoga CARES (Coalition Advocating Real Everyday Safety).

There are three open positions for school board: mark your calendars and plan to vote on May 21!
