The three candidates seeking the open seat on the City School District of Albany Board of Education participated in a virtual Board Candidates Forum on Wednesday evening. You can listen to the audio of the forum on our YouTube channel.
The candidates are Victor Cain, Hassan Elminyawi and Edith Leet. The board appointed Elminyawi last year to fill a vacant seat; that term expires June 30.
Please follow these links to view the resume each candidate has provided:
The board election is being held in conjunction with the district's annual budget vote, which is being conducted entirely by mail in all New York school districts due to the COVID-19 crisis. Absentee ballots have been mailed and must be received at Academy Park by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 9 to be counted. You can mail in your ballot or drop it off in person at Academy Park from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. each weekday until the June 9 voting deadline.
If you have any questions about your ballot or this year's voting process, please contact District Clerk Tanya Bowie at (518) 475-6015.
