Cohoes resident Nadia Carey won the write-in vote in the May 21 board election and has accepted the position. Her three-year term will begin July 1 as she joins incumbent Mark Pascale and Sue Dion in filling the three seats that were up for election.
From Nadia Carey
“Education is the most important investment a community can make in its future. I believe all Cohoes students should graduate with the tools they need for future success, in all areas of their lives, no matter the path they take. In guiding the District toward this end, it is critical that the School Board is also respectful of taxpayers by ensuring that resources are focused appropriately and effectively. Being a member of the Board will allow me to share my unique perspective — as the parent of two Cohoes graduates, an active volunteer and as past employee of the district, as well as my professional experience in education and finance – in this endeavor. I am committed to supporting the students, faculty, staff, and the entire community, and I look forward to investing in the future of Cohoes!”
