Meet the candidates for the Saratoga Springs Board of Education (the election is May 17) and learn about their stand on key issues, including the district’s commitment to a policy of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in which students come first and teachers get the support they deserve.
On Monday, April 18, the City of Saratoga Springs broke ground on the downtown portion of the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail.
