I couldn’t agree more. This i yet one more example of what makes Croton so very special! The quality of all candidates running represented a true wealth of talent and a real win/win situation for our village. This race was similar to the last election of a Village Judge … both Guy Adami and Sam Watkins were super, excellent candidates and the village stood to win with either one of them! So too with this year’s crop of school board candidates. Congratulations to both the winning and losing candidates.

On top of that, this village once again showed it’s true colors and supported both the school budget and the library budget. We are a kid-oriented and pro-education kind of community and I thank all who contribute to make it so.

This school board election was truly an embarrassment of riches, as all four of the candidates were superb. The Board will be well-served by the winners, but we should all give a big thank you to Marshall Goldberg for his many years of excellent service, and let’s all encourage the marvelous Linda Conte to try it again in the future!
