School Board and Budget Vote Tomorrow May 21st

Wednesday, May 15, 2019
Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 21st, voters across Long Island will head to the polls to vote on their school budget and vote for school board members. It is important that every BTA member vote in their election and support the school budget. Not every district has a contested school board election, but every district does have a budget to vote for. Here in Bablyon the two Trustees running for Babylon School Board are running unopposed, but we still need your support to have our budget pass. By supporting your school budget you are providing educators with the resources needed to effectively educate the next generation of students. Below are the candidates in Suffolk County that NYSUT and local teachers unions have voted to endorse.
