WPCNR SCHOOL DAYS. By John F. Bailey May 12, 2015:

Peter Bassano, 13-year member of the Board of Education, announced last week at the League of Women Voters School Board Candidates Forum at the Womens Club that he would not be running for another term on the School Board.

The announcement by Bassano came after petitions by candidates who wanted to run for the Board of Education had to have their petitions filed and was not publicized widely by the district to this reporter’s knowledge.

Bassano has long been concerned and an advocate for easing the increase in pay for district teachers and administrators, and expenses during his service.

This means that there will be at least one new face on the School Board and perhaps two, should Michael Bellantoni and Cayne Letezia garner more votes in next Tuesday’s School Board Election and Budget vote.

Rose Lovitch and Jim Hricay are the incumbent School Board Members running for second terms.
