School Board Re-Election Candidates Speak Out

Dana Levenberg & Kim Case have written this letter to the editor regarding their re-election efforts.

An Open Letter to the Editor: 


We are announcing our candidacy for re-election to the Ossining School District Board of Education. We would like to thank the community for supporting us throughout our previous terms as Board of Education Trustees. 


We are dedicated to continuing to educate our students to the highest standards during these challenging economic times.  Our track record demonstrates our focus on maintaining strong programs while embracing tough fiscal realities.  Responsibly, we put forth an affordable facilities bond this year to address the aging infrastructure and capacity issues in our schools without adding to our tax burden, which the community overwhelmingly supported.  In the last three years, we passed the lowest budget-to-budget increases in decades while maintaining excellent academic, athletic and cultural arts programs.


We are strongly supporting this year’s proposed budget which is below the tax cap, despite increased state and federal mandates and a growing student enrollment. This fiscally responsible budget cuts $4 million in expenses, while keeping core programs in place for all students. Ossining School’s continue to garner honors and awards which are directly attributable to our outstanding programs in science research, overall academics, cultural arts, athletics, and our school spirit.  


During our terms, we listened and supported the community’s request to strengthen communications.  We are committed to representing parents and community members to keep Ossining Schools strong. Please vote for Dana Levenberg and Kim Case at OHS on Tuesday, May 15th for Ossining Board of Education so we may continue to serve our wonderful community.

I've attended a number of school board meetings over the last few years and have gotten to witness first hand the efforts that go into the track record that Dana & Kim refer to in this article. I couldn't agree more with them. I've seen how they have helped the board push the district to do a terrific job of balancing the needs of the students with the needs of ALL taxpayers, despite the trying economic times we still find ourselves in. I enthusiastically support them for re-election and urge everyone else to do so as well. Andy Kaplan
