2021 Scarsdale Board of Education Candidate Forum


Sunday, May 2, 2021
7:30 p.m. via Zoom Webinar

LWVS held a virtual candidate forum in anticipation of the upcoming May 18, 2021, contested school board election. The candidate forum offered an opportunity for candidate opening and closing statements as well as a question and answer format with timed responses. Questions were a combination of LWVS and audience-submitted questions, designed to address a broad range of issues, and the event was moderated by a trained LWV of Westchester representative from outside of Scarsdale.

The four candidates whose names will appear on the ballot for the two open seats in the upcoming School Board Election, Jim Dugan, Irin Israel, Jessica Resnick-Ault, and Alison Tepper Singer, all participated. The two School Board seats will go to the two highest vote recipients in the May 18, 2021, election.

The election will take place on Tuesday, May 18, 2021. For more information, please visit our School Budget Vote/School Board Election Voter Information page.

Questions regarding the Candidate Forum or the School Budget Vote and School Board Election should be directed to Alissa Baum and Beatrice Sevcik, the LWVS Voter Service Chairs.
