Nyack School Board: The Winners Are…

Tom LaColla, Bryan Burrell and Claudette Jimerson were the top vote getters in the Tuesday May 20 trustee/budget election. Newcomers LaColla and Jimerson will replace incumbents Dr. Fletcher Johnson and Vic Czajkowksi. Voters will send Burrell back for a fifth term.

The Nyack Schools’ budget was approved by 64% of the voters, passing 1357 to 732. The approved budget of $68.9 million is a 4.9 percent increase over last year.

Turnout was somewhat higher for this vote than the 2007 budget/trustee election. A little more than 16 percent of registered voters cast ballots on Tuesday compared to 13 percent in 2007.
