There will be two candidates on the Tuesday, May 21, ballot for one open seat on the Albany Public Library Board of Trustees.
The candidates are: John D. Davis of Ten Eyck Avenue and Jose M. Lopez of View Avenue. Both men submitted valid nominating petitions to the City School District of Albany to obtain positions on the ballot.
Both candidates are seeking to fill the remaining two years of Mimi Mounteer’s board term. Mounteer, who served as library trustee for more than 10 years, died in January.
The public is invited to a candidate forum at the Main Library (161 Washington Avenue) on Wednesday, May 15, at 6 p.m. The two trustee candidates have been invited to speak to the public. Library leaders will also present the 2014 library budget, which is a flat spending plan that carries no tax levy increase.
The library trustee vote is held in conjunction with the school district’s budget vote. More information about trustee candidates will be available on the library’s website at www.albanypubliclibrary.org. Details about voting locations will be available on the school district’s website at www.albanyschools.org.
