Filed under: Around Town,News |

Five candidates are in the race for three seats on the Huntington School Board. Tom DiGiacomo, Bill Dwyer, Xavier Palacios, Emily Rogan and Susan Tully submitted petitions by Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline and qualified for the May 15 ballot.

The winning candidates will serve three-year terms commencing July 1, 2012 and running through June 30, 2015. Incumbent trustees Elizabeth Black and Kim Brown decided not to run for re-election. Mrs. Black has served three full terms totaling nine years. Mrs. Brown has served for the past four years, including a one-year unexpired term and a full three-year term.

Voting will take place May 15 in the Huntington High School lobby from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. To be eligible, an individual must be a U.S. citizen, 18 years of age or older, a resident of Huntington School District for at least 30 days and be registered to vote in a general election or with the school district.

Applications for absentee ballots may be applied for at the District Clerk’s office at the district’s administrative offices located at 50 Tower Street, Huntington Station, at least seven days before the election if the ballot is to be mailed to the voter or up to the day before the election if the ballot is to be delivered personally to the voter. Absentee ballots must be returned by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15 for them to be counted in the 2012 election and budget vote.

For more information contact District Clerk Elizabeth Troffa at 673-2126.

  3. More of a coffee person. But I can see you are already trying to paint the wrong picture by bringing the tea party into this at all.

    Palacios is way to connected with town hall. I have my facts straight you simply don’t like what I have to say.

    We got enough lawyers in town and collusion last thing we need are lawyers on school board too.

  4. “Palacios is way too connected with town hall…” To me, that sounds like an advantage. I want someone who actually knows what he’s talking about.
    As far as the lawyer part, a person shouldn’t really be defined by their chosen profession, rather by the things they accomplish during that time..and as far as accomplishments go, I don’t even think there is enough room on this post to list his.

  5. Thank you for confirming he is connected to town hall. Most do not want the local politics seeping in the school issues.

    accomplishments? Laughable, more like political posturing. His buddy Ed Perez will be vying for a town board seat for 2013.

    What you do does define you as a person. What you do for a living even more so. I won’t be voting for him, apparently you will. Kudos! I will be voting for people who actually showed up for board of Ed meetings and know what is going on in this district. People who understand they are TRUSTEES of a very large budget and have the children’s best interest at heart.

    I will never forget him saying “there are no gangs in Huntington Station” Talk about uninformed!

  7. It is on tape and available on the hufsd website for any to listen too. Hard to call facts lies when it is readily available. As far as being connected to town hall, why are the taxpayers footing the bill to have his satellite office on NY Avenue re-faced?

    Sounds like a bad case of itchy collusion to me.
