Rivas challenges 2 incumbents for Schenectady school board

William Rivas, who works for a fatherhood program in Schenectady, is challenging school board incumbents Cathy Lewis and Ann Reilly, according to school district spokeswoman Karen Corona.

Wednesday was the last day to file nominating signatures with the school district to run for one of two open school board seats. Lewis and Reilly have each filed for a new three-year term starting in June, and Rivas joined the fray Wednesday.

Rivas has also helped organize a coalition dominated by clergy across the city that has advocated for increased funding to Schenectady schools this year.

Reilly and Lewis, the board’s current president, have served on the school board since 2010 — the longest-serving members on the board — according to the district website.

Voters on May 17 will have a chance to chose two of the three candidates.
