Want a chance to see your tax dollars at work? East Hampton High School is inviting people to visit the updated building on Long Lane Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be tours of the new wing of the school, along with presentations and more.
And while they’re there, they could stop in to the auditorium at 1 p.m. to meet the candidates for East Hampton School Board. Hosted by the East Hampton Group for Good Government, the candidates forum will be moderated by Arthur Melman and Steve Ludsin. Candidates will introduce themselves and answer 10 to 12 questions from the moderators. Questions will be taken from the audience, and moderators will pose some, too, as time allows. The forum will run through 3 p.m.
Although six people submitted petitions to run for two spots on the board, one of them, Bill Rosenthal, has now dropped out of the race, leaving Paul Fiondella, Jacqueline Lowey, Marie Klarman, Patricia Hope, and Liz Pucci vying for the spots, barring any late additions to the race.
By New York State law, the district has reopened the nominating petitions. Those latecomers who may not have been able to meet the April 18 deadline now have until May 9 to get their packets to Kerri Stevens in the district office.
