COMMON CORE OPPONENTS

TURNED BACK AT CCS POLLS

COOPERSTOWN – Incumbent Cooperstown Central school board member Marcy Birch led the ballot today, garnering 444 votes to win a second term.

Second was 20-year veteran school board member Tony Scalici (404) and newcomer Mary Bonderoff (383), a mother of three sons, two still at CCS.

The two candidates most closely allied with the opposition to Common Core that erupted in early March, Tabetha Rathbone (315) and Laurie Williams (274), rounded out the tally.

Voters approved the $17.7 million budget by a wide margin, 539-159, and also approved purchase of a new bus, 568-121.
