The Bedford Board of Education announced that three applications have been received for an open seat on the board of education: Joe Malichio (Pound Ridge); Edward Reder (Mount Kisco); Brian J. Sheerin (Bedford Corners).
The Board of Education will conduct public interviews of the three candidates at a special board meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 18, in the Little Theatre at the Fox Lane Middle School. The meeting will be televised live on BCSD-TV (Bedford Channel 18 and FIOS Channel 1982), available on the district website via live video streaming and subsequently rebroadcast on BCSD-TV and the website. The League of Women Voters will moderate the interviews.
Copies of the completed applications will be available at the Sept. 18 meeting. To allow for input, members of the community are invited to provide feedback on the candidates by emailing the board of education at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Sept. 20th.
The board will consider each candidate based upon his/her application, interview responses and community input. The board plans to discuss the candidates in an executive session and to announce the appointment of the new member as soon as possible.
The new board member will assume his/her seat on the board and begin the mandated orientation program immediately. The new member will serve until the May 20 general election for Board of Education members.
