Gibson bows out
By Saranac Hale Spencer
VOORHEESVILLE Two seats on the district’s seven-member board of education are up for election this year, and board President David Gibson is not planning to seek re-election.
“In deference to the community and my family,” Gibson announced at Tuesday’s board meeting, “I’m not going to run.” Because of a demanding work schedule over the next few years, Gibson, who heads X-Ray Optical Systems, said that he won’t have the time to dedicate to board business.
This was his first five-year term on the board. Since he took his seat, the term has been shortened to four years, a change the district made in an effort to attract more candidates to run.
Gibson is confident in the board’s ability, he said, adding, “It’s a first-rate board.”
Kevin Kroencke, whose seat is also up this year, did not announce his intentions regarding the election.
Justin Brusgul, who made his first run for the board against two incumbents in last year’s race, is planning another run this year.
Petitions are due by April 19 and can be picked up in the district office.
