The Menands library is run by a small board of volunteer trustees that meets once per month. The trustees serve five year terms. Each year one board seat comes up for election in May, and the new board member starts their term in July when another board member’s term ends. The vote is held at the same time as the school budget vote, and any resident of Menands is eligible to run.
If are or know of a Menands resident who would like to run, candidate petitions are available from Aileen Nicoll at Menands School. The candidate needs to collect 50 signatures from fellow Menands residents in order to get on the ballot.
The election will be held on May 15th, so it’s best to start as soon as possible!
The board would love to have you.
