The annual budget vote for the Fulton City School District’s 2013-2014 budget will be held Tuesday, May 21 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Voters will also have the opportunity to cast ballots for two open seats on the Fulton School Board.
The candidates elected will served three-year terms and will begin their term of office July 1. Christine Plath and David Carvey will appear on the ballot. Board member Brian Hotaling has decided to not run again. His term expires on June 30.
With two candidates running for the two available seats, there is not a contest race.
This is Plath’s second attempt at running for the board. She ran in the 2011 election, one of the seven candidates running for four open seats.
She has decided to give it another try after not being voted in.
Plath said that she is fully aware of how public education operates and how schools run. She taught at Mexico High School for 30 years and retired in 2010 as the assistant principal of Mexico High School.
Plath taught summer school for 11 years and was the summer school principal in Phoenix for one year.
She currently teaches as an adjunct math professor at Cayuga Community College. She also tutors students who attend school in the Fulton City School District.
Having both an educator and administrator background, Plath hopes to communicate students’ needs.
