1) MLK Center Party was a success!

2) Board Annuls Election Results – Community Responds
The East Ramapo School Board has annulled the election of Sabrina Charles-Pierre. The board president claims that he forgot that Sabrina needed to be sworn in within 30 days after she was elected, which is required when an election is to fill a vacancy. During the past five years there have been several elections to fill vacancies, and the process of swearing in within 30 days was never forgotten. Both board president Weissmandl and trustee Grossman were elected to fill vacancies in 2014, and both were sworn in within 30 days.
Strong East Ramapo has started a petition calling on Weissmandl to resign. Please sign and share.
There will be a rally at the next board meeting. Please do not fail to be there!
Details of the Rally: Tuesday, August 9 at 7:00 PM at the East Ramapo District Offices, 105 S. Madison Ave, Spring Valley NY.
