Saratoga Unite Hosts a Poetry Slam for Science!
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!
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!
