Something happened in the last year that all of a sudden made parents begin questioning their local school board. What can local reporters tell us about how this national trend played out in our local school districts? Click the link below to find out on this week’s episode of The State of Greater Western New York Report:
This week our guests are Brenda Hanson, a freelance reporter for the Arcade Herald, and Adame Zaremski, editor of the East Aurora Advertiser. Hanson covered the Pioneer School District race where Mark Kless won by a landslide. Zaremski covered the Iroquois district (and quite a few others), where James Michalek won convincingly in a quieter race. Both these school board candidates, along with newly elected Greece School Board member Mark Buonaugurio will keynote the Summer 2022 Greater Western New York Town Hall meeting on August 3rd beginning at 7:30 pm.

In the first half of the show, both guests gave a background of the particular race they covered, why and how the candidates decided to run, and how their readers reacted to the story.
During the show’s final segment, the guest dove deeper into the issue and explained how readers can contact them with more suggestions.
All our guests happily answered questions from the live audience. In fact, these are probably some of the same questions you had.
