Niagara Gazette — Pending each receiving one vote in the district's election, current board President Jodee Riordan and newcomers Anna Wright and Betty VanDenBosch Warrick will serve three-year terms beginning July 1. Current board members Jim Sperduti and Jerome Andres will not seek new terms when they expire June 30.
Much more focus in Lew-Port will be on the district's school budget, with a $40 million spending plan requiring a 60 percent supermajority of voters to gain approval. This is because the plan calls for a 5.5 percent tax levy increase, exceeding the district's cap figure which was set at 4 percent.
Residents will also be asked to vote on a $26 million capital improvement project which Superintendent Christopher Roser said would not impact taxes itself with funding coming from state sources unable to affect district spending in its yearly budget.
