Use VOTE411 as candidates guide

The League of Women Voters of the Cooperstown Area held a candidates’ debate for the two open seats on the Cooperstown Central School District Board of Education last week. There are three candidates running, Alicia Chase, Peter Iorizzo, and Cody Moore. Maureen Murray, Co-president of the LWV of the Cooperstown Area, moderated the event. The school board elections are non-partisan; candidates do not run as members of a party.

On Election Day, May 17, voters will also vote on the 2022-2023 district budget.

The election will be held at the Cooperstown High School, 39 Linden Ave., Cooperstown from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Any citizen, 18 years of age or older who has been a resident of the district for 30 days preceding the election is qualified to vote. Absentee ballots are available at the district office. Contact Wendy Lansing at 607-547-5364.

The League of Women Voters of the Cooperstown Area also invites voters to use the League’s online voters’ guide, VOTE411, for the upcoming Cooperstown Central School District budget vote and election of members of the school board. All candidates will be invited to participate in VOTE411. The guide will include biographical information about the candidates, candidates’ responses to questions related to school issues, and information on the budget. Voters may use the VOTE411 guide 24/7 beginning May 8 to compare statements and positions among the three candidates.

“The League is so pleased to be able to return to in-person candidates’ forums for school board this year,” said Patty MacLeish, Co-president, LWV of the Cooperstown Area. “Those who are unable to attend can learn more about the candidates on our online voters’ guide, VOTE411.”

VOTE411 is supported by the League of Women Voters of New York State Education Foundation and the LWV of the Cooperstown Area.
