TO THE EDITOR: I have known Kenneth W. Maurer Sr. for 43 years, and I have always found him to be honest and fully committed to our eight children’s education.
Ken has attended approximately 80 percent of the Beekmantown School Board meetings for the last three years.
Ken has also attended the Insurance Consortium meetings for the school districts within Clinton County.
And Ken was on the committee to help select the new Beekmantown School District superintendent.
Kenneth W. Maurer Sr. — honesty, maturity, involved and able to consider both sides of every issue.
The only logical choice.

TO THE EDITOR: I am pleased to announce my candidacy for the Northern Adirondack School Board.
I am a long-time resident of the Northern Adirondack School District. I graduated from Northern Adirondack in 1975. My daughter, Jennifer VanValkenburg, also was a student at Northern Adirondack.
I am a retired New York state correction officer and a full-time farmer. I served as union representative for the New York State Benevolent Association.
I am actively involved in the FFA alumni and our community. I have been a member of the Ellenburg Center Fire Department for 20-plus years. I was also an EMT for 15 years.
My motivation to run for School Board comes directly for the education of our children. I take pride in our community and the programs in our district. We have several traditions in our school that we need to preserve.
Also, I would like to try to keep the tax base within reason and still be able to provide the highest level of education for our students.
I look forward to working with many educators and staff members throughout the school system. I would like to see the School Board and administration work closer together to provide the best learning environment for our children.
