On May 20 voters in the Candor Central School District passed the 2008-2009 budget by a margin of 338 to 284.
The second proposition on the ballot asked the voters to approve the lease purchase of three new school busses. It passed 337 to 283.
Jim Douglas, the sitting president of the board of education, and Noelle Bartolis, also an incumbent, both ran unopposed for their seats. Douglas was returned to the board with 429 votes and Bartolis received 376.
The budget that voters passed will cause a 3.5 percent rise in the tax levy. This is largely caused by contractual increases in salaries, rises in the cost of special education and rising fuel costs.
