As presented by Longwood Superintendent Lance Lohman at several BOE and civic meetings, the proposed budget carries a projected tax levy increase of 0.60 percent, the lowest increase in more than a decade.
Six candidates are vying for two at large seats on the BOE; each term is for three years starting in July 2022. The candidates are: Incumbents William Massian and Rhonda Stitham, Nadia Chanza, Maye Abdella, Michael Byrne and Christina Jackson
