RYE, N.Y. - The polls will be open in the City of Rye and the Village of Rye Brook on Tuesday for residents to vote on the Rye City School District and Blind Brook-Rye Union Free School District's 2012-13 adopted budgets and board of education members.
In Rye, two of the three current Board members whose seats are up, Josh Nathan and Ray Schmitt, will not seek re-election, leaving the door open for newcomers Nancy Pasquale, Chris Repetto and Patrick Cox . Current Board President Laura Slack is the only incumbent seeking another term.
The district adopted a tax cap compliant budget that would raise the property tax levy by 1.94 percent and pulls $2.5 million out of the fund balance.
The Blind Brook Board of Education adopted a budget on April 16 that calls for a 1.71 percent property tax levy increase. With current Board member Steve Kaplan not seeking re-election, there are two challengers competing with incumbent Nancy Barr for the two open spots. Former board member and President Rick Buzin and Dan Savitt, current vice chair of the citizen's financial advisory committee, are the two other candidates.
Voters in Rye and Rye Brook can go to Rye Middle School and the BMP Elementary School respectively from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. to vote.
