“I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, and the one constant in my jobs was always content creation,” said Danielle Klahr, who edits and writes content for local and national businesses.

GUILDERLAND — Erika Gauthier has been named president of the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce.

Gauthier has been acting as the interim president since October, when Kathy Burbank stepped down to become the executive director of Community Caregivers.

One tenant was taken to the hospital for treatment, and a firefighter was treated for an injury at the scene.

The current caretakers of the Federal home built by John Veeder feel they belong at Rose Hill and have invested themselves in its upkeep.

A State Trooper fled the scene after crashing into two parked vehicles on Altamont's Main Street; he turned himself in 15 hours later, which, police say, was too late to do tests for drug or alcohol use.

GUILDERLAND — Two incumbents — Allan Simpson and Judy Slack — and newcomer Christopher McManus are running for three seats on the school board. No one else turned in petitions by Monday’s deadline.

All of them support the $92 million budget, which district residents will decide on, on May 20, along with the election.

GUILDERLAND — Christopher McManus is making his first run for the school board because he believes “new blood” is needed.

GUILDERLAND — “I feel you need to give back to your community,” said Allan Simpson, explaining why he is running again for the school board. “I can offer expertise with my financial background,” he added.

Simpson works as director of accounting operations for the New York State Insurance Fund.

GUILDERLAND — Judy Slack is running for a third term on the school board because, she said, “I like feeling I’m doing something for the kids.”

Slack, who began her career as a high-school English teacher, worked for 24 years as a teaching assistant at Lynnwood Elementary School in Guilderland, retiring in 2008.
