Lake Placid School District – Official Vote Count

The Lake Placid Central School District announce the official vote count and confirm that voters have overwhelmingly approved the proposed $17.6 million school budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year, with 81% of voters backing the plan. District leaders expressed their appreciation to the entire community for supporting the budget:

“We think this represents a vote of confidence,” said Superintendent Roger Catania, “that community members believe we are moving in the right direction by prioritizing students and programs while crafting budgets that make responsible use of taxpayer dollars.”

District voters have also approved the lease of three new school buses, as well as an increase in funding for the E.M. Cooper Memorial Public Library. In addition, voters have selected three new school board members: Enzo Villani, Camelia Sheridan, and Patricia Stanton. The three new board members replace Phil Baumbach, Herb Stoerr, and Jennifer Tufano, who did not run for reelection. As the leading vote recipient, Patricia Stanton will begin her term immediately, replacing Jennifer Tufano whose appointed term ends with the election.
“First, we want to take this opportunity to thank Phil, Herb, and Jenn for their service to the district. School board members are unpaid volunteers and they devote many hours working in the interests of our children.” Catania added, “It’s an incredibly important public service that sometimes goes unnoticed. We are extremely grateful for their many contributions. We also want to welcome Pat, Cammy, and Enzo to the Board and look forward to working with them in the future.”
