East Ramapo School Board Election May 17/16

Once again, East Ramapo voter turnout for the school board election was more than double the numbers from other school districts. One of the #4Women4ALL candidates, Sabrina Charles-Pierre, was elected to serve a three year term.

The school Budget passed in East Ramapo (as in all Rockland County districts) despite continuing lack of support from communities that largely send their children to private yeshivas. At one polling location, support for the budget was only 8%.  Nowhere else in the county was there such a poor showing of support for the public schools.  Only because voter turnout and support was so high at other East Ramapo polling stations did the budget pass. According to Power of Ten, hree polling places had over 70% of voters casting a YES vote.
