SL school board candidates forum Monday

SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Teachers Association is hosting a “Meet the Candidates” forum Monday night featuring the four people running for two available seats on the school district’s Board of Education.

The forum will take place at 7 p.m. in the Large Group Instruction (LGI) room at the Saranac Lake High School.

“We wanted to give the candidates a chance to present their views to the public and also answer any questions,” SLTA Vice President Joe Thill said in an email.

All four candidates – Esther Arlan, Clyde Baker, Shir Filler and Tracey Schrader – have agreed to participate, Thill said.

The school board election will take place May 21, the same day as the district’s budget vote. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
