Voters in area school districts will be taking to the polls on Tuesday to decide whether or not proposed budgets will be accepted, and who will be selected to fill open school board positions.

In Utica, residents will be voting on a proposed budget of nearly $139 million, which is the result of a one percent hike in spending compared to last year’s $137 million dollar plan.

Voters will also determine which two candidates out of the six running will sit on the Utica City School District‘s School Board. Among the candidates for the open positions are incumbents Donald Dawes and Barry Goodwin, who are being challenged by Robert Jenkins, Asma Mohammed, Michael Paul and Carmen Sonia Martinez.

The Rome City School District is also looking for approval on its $105 million dollar budget, which is nearly four percent higher than last year’s budget of slightly more than $101 million.

The competition for Rome’s School Board is slightly more open, with five candidates running for three spots. Candidates include incumbents Leonard Summa, Louis Daniello and Paul Hagerty, and are facing a challenge from Richard Hitchings and Richard Campbell.
