On behalf of the Shenendehowa Board of Education, I want to thank those 3,200 residents who turned out to vote in the special election last week dealing with the proposed 37 acre land sale and our $22 million capital referendum.  Both proposals were supported by very wide majorities: 84 perc…

The special referendum on Dec. 5 is a rare opportunity to cast a ballot for a school district proposal that will have such a far-reaching impact. I urge the voters in the Shenendehowa School District to vote “yes” on the sale of the Shen land to the town of Clifton Park.

On Dec. 5, the voters of the Shenendehowa School District will have the opportunity to approve the sale by the district of 37 acres to the town of Clifton Park by voting yes to Proposition #1. Both parties have agreed to keep this wooded parcel free of commercial development and instead guar…
