ELMSFORD, N.Y. -- The Elmsford Author's Fund is sponsoring a "Meet the Candidates" Forum for all candidates running for the Elmsford Board of Education Sunday at 3 p.m. at Elmsford Village Hall.
Five candidates, including one incumbent, are on the ballot for two open seats on the Elmsford Board of Education with elections set for May 21.
Incumbent Matthew RC Evans is joined by candidates Justin Datino, Tilsa Rodriguez-Gonzalez, Christopher F. Sia and Theodore Thomas.
Board member Josephine Bazan-Bass is not running for another three-year term.
According to Elmsford Author's Fund spokesperson Maria A. Peers, more than 40 residents attended Wednesday's program with the five school board candidates.
"This (Wednesday's meeting) is the first time that community members were given the opportunity to really hear candidates speak, giving them a forum to learn their stance on various issues and how they might approach various situations," Peers said in an email. "It was very well received and many of those in attendance expressed a desire to attend the second forum to be held this coming Sunday."
Candidates will introduce themselves and answer questions intended to give community members an understanding of each candidate’s vision and values. A Spanish-speaking is on hand to assist with translation.
