Springs School Candidates

   The Group for Good Government will moderate a forum for the Springs School Board candidates on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in the school’s gymnasium.
Vying for the two seats that will be vacated by the departure of Christopher Kelley, the school board president, and Thomas Talmage, a board member since 2005, are four hopefuls — Liz Mendelman, Tim Frazier, Phyllis Mallah, and Arthur Goldman.
Ms. Mendelman is best known in the Springs School community as president of the PTA and a member of the Springs Citizens Advisory Committee. Mr. Frazier is the principal of the Southampton Intermediate School, and the husband of Tracey Frazier, a Springs School teacher.
Mr. Goldman, a social studies teacher and coordinator at the high school, is a familiar face at board meetings. His wife, Eileen, is a teacher’s assistant in Springs.
Phyllis Mallah, a retired educator from Yonkers and full-time Springs resident, rounds out the candidates. Ms. Mallah is the only one of the four who has run prior to this year.
The Group for Good Government allows each contender a minute for opening remarks, a minute each to answer the questions posed, and then a minute to summarize their views.    B.L.
