Two longtime trustees and the treasurer of the district’s Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns are running unopposed for three available seats in the May 19 Tarrytown Board of Education race.

Board President Mimi Godwin, who has served on the board since 1996, is looking forward to continuing serving the community where she has called home for nearly 50 years.

“I see the schools as an integral part of our community,” Godwin said. “The students of this community are extremely important to me. I feel I want to do everything I can to enhance their experience for their school years. I think my main contribution is my enthusiasm, my dedication and my love of the district.”

Godwin thanked Vice President Craig Laub, who opted not to seek another three-year term after nine years on the board, for his contributions to the district.

Returning for a 10th term is Trustee Joe Lillis, a banker and 29-year resident of Sleepy Hollow who feels his expertise in finance has benefitted the district. He plans on focusing on getting the budget passed and the capital projects completed.

Joining the board for the first time will be James Husselbee, a tax consultant, 15-year resident of Sleepy Hollow and father of a high school sophomore.

Besides serving on the Foundation board, Husselbee was a member of the Fields Committee that supported the field renovations and has been a soccer coach in AYSO and WISO.

“I wanted to get more involved and I think it would be a good fit,” Husselbee said of his decision to run for the Board of Education. “I wanted to try to give back. I have a willingness to learn and a passion for public education.”

Husselbee noted he had a particular interest in special education and would like to get involved in helping that program expand.
