To the editor and my Pelham neighbors:
As you already know tomorrow, Tuesday, May 21st, we have our annual school budget vote and BOE election. This year we have a contested election with 4 candidates for 3 seats on the BOE.
While I know all four of the candidates and honestly believe they are persons of integrity and good intentions, I believe that Leah Tahbaz, John Brice and Vincent Mazzaro are the best candidates for the job.
Leah, John and Vinny come to the BOE without any agenda other than keeping Pelham schools the excellent institutions they are and supporting and leading our professional staff and administrator in continuing to search out ways to effectively and efficiently improve our schools.
Leah, John and Vinny are not proposing that we in Pelham take the self defeating step of voting down our budget, but rather want to be part of a solution that finds efficiencies that at a minimum reduce the rates of cost increases while preserving programs.
I respectfully ask you to join me in voting for Leah, John and Vinny and in voting YES for our school budget.
