East Ramapo School Board Appeals To State For Decision On Charles-Pierre

East Ramapo School Board officials have written the state education commissioner, requesting that a board member whose term has been cut short because a “technical error” prevented her from taking the oath of office in a timely manner, be granted the chance to serve a full two years, according to lohud.com.

The request comes after nearly 1,000 people signed a petition to restore the full term of Sabrina Charles-Pierre, whose position on the board was recently cut in half after it came to light that she failed to be sworn in before the state’s required limit of 30 days, according to lohud.com.

The petition, which called for Charles-Pierre’s term to be restored to two years or for Board President Yehuda Weissmandl to resign, is not the only measure the people of East Ramapo are planning, according to lohud.com, which reported that organizers plan to rally outside of the school district’s central offices at 7 p.m. on Aug. 9.

Many of the same people critical of the decision regarding Charles-Pierre also came out recently against Joe Chajmovicz, who is widely unknown in the community but was appointed to a vacant seat on the board last week, according to lohud.com.
