Timothy Burke, who has regularly attended school board meetings since 2003 and served for five years on the district’s now-defunct Citizens’ Budget Advisory Committee, is making his first run for the board because he believes there is a lack of leadership.

Nicholas Fahrenkopf believes the school district needs to make long-range plans, and that his ability to analyze data to solve problems can help with that.

As a new school board member three years ago, Christine Hayes recalls taking a course where she learned “it takes a board member 2.6 years to become fully functional.” Hayes is at that point now. “I want to give back all that information I’ve been learning,” she said. “I’m learning more every day.”

Seema Rivera is a Guilderland High School graduate, a mother, a taxpayer, and an educator, all of which she says well qualify her for serving on the school board.

ALBANY — A jury found a Guilderland man guilty of attempted assault last Thursday, according to a release from the Albany County District Attorney’s Office.
