Meet the Candidates for Sag Harbor School District Board of Education
Candidates for the Sag Harbor Board of Education have been invited to give a brief talk about themselves and their campaign. They are listed below in the order they will appear on the ballot (this is not the order of appearance at our meeting):
There are three seats open, so the three top highest vote recipients will be elected. Meet the people who want to establish District policies and manage your tax money. Do you know that approximately 80% of your taxes are for the School District? Each candidate will speak individually at the meeting. This is NOT a debate. NO CELL PHONES OR RECORDING DEVICES WILL BE ALLOWED.

The DEC extended the public comment period on the Sand Land Mine matter. In Sept. 2018 the DEC modified the Mine’s permit, said there is no more sand and ordered the mine to begin reclamation. The DEC cited the Health Dept.’s report that contamination found in our aquifer beneath the Mine was caused by the operations at the Mine. Then in March, 2019, the DEC gave the Mine a permit to operate for another 8 years and to excavate 40 feet deeper and closer to the aquifer. Please demand a public hearing on this fiasco. Write to Mark Carrara, NYS DEC Region 1, Division of Environmental Permits, SUNY@ Stony Brook, 50 Circle Road, Stony Brook, NY11790. Writing to Gov. Cuomo would also help.
