Incumbents are seeking board seats


Tonawanda News — “I have the perspective of both sides,” he said of his experience. “I think I have some things to offer as a candidate that’s still needed in the district.” 

Osborn said she joined the board after watching her children grow up in the district. She said she’s pressed to retain the district’s special education programs and has been a voice of reason during a factitious time among board members. 

“I went in there with a parent’s point of view and I have learned some of the other side: The administration, the union issues,” she said. “I do feel that I bring a level of accountability. The board needs someone to ask the hard questions.” 

Tricia DiVirgilio, an district administrator, said there is still time for others interesting in running for the board prior to the May 1 deadline. Candidates are required to obtain 100 signatures of support from North Tonawanda residents before they can run. 

School board elections will be held May 21 along with the district budget vote.
