Dryden School Board race contested

I'm very sad to see that most local school board elections are uncontested, but happy to see that the Dryden schools actually have five candidates for four slots. Three of the candidates - Kathy Zahler, Chris Gibbons, and Karin LaMotte - are incumbents, and Bill Harding and Jennifer Davis are running for their first terms. The seats are for three-year terms, with one one-year term. (Ithaca's deadline is later, April 30th.)

Also in today's Journal, they reported on Governor Paterson, whose common sense I'm really admiring at this point. Why? He wants a hiring freeze in state government, and recognizes that the STAR property tax breaks are not necessarily the most effective way to address the growing challenge of property taxes.
