CHATEAUGAY — Two men are vying for a three-year unexpired term on the Chateaugay Central School Board.
Tony Martin and Kip Young are running against each other for the seat formerly held by Scott Henderson.
Incumbent School Board members Susan Jones-King and John McCormick are running unopposed for their three-year seats this year.
According to the School District’s annual budget newsletter, Martin has always lived in Chateaugay and graduated from CCS in 1990. He is a teacher with the State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
He has three children in the School District, “which is one of the reasons why I am interested in becoming a board member.
“I also want to become informed, involved and help make decisions that will continue to make the Chateaugay Central School District an important part of our children’s educational future and success,” he wrote.
“CCS needs a School Board member to provide leadership and someone willing to work hard, to take on a tough job that needs to be done,” Young said.
He would bring 20 years’ experience in the private power-generation industry to the board, he wrote.
“I value public education. I want to see us not only survive, but excel. To do so, we need to be able to solve problems and stand strong under difficult circumstances.
He has two children who attend the High School.
