The East Williston School District will hold a contested election May 21, with incumbent Trustees Robert Fallarino and Leonard Hirsch and newcomers Denise Tercynski and Eswar Sivaraman competing for two seats.

The deadline to file a petition to run for the board of trustees closed Monday at 5 p.m.

Candidates are running to secure a three-year term.

Fallarino currently serves as the vice president of the board. He is running for re-election. Challenger Tercynski is running for his current seat. Efforts to reach both candidates were unavailing.

Hirsch is from Roslyn Heights and has two children in the district.

During his campaign in 2018, he told Blank Slate Media some of his proudest achievements during his time on the board including district-wide technology and literacy initiatives. Challenger Sivaraman is running for his current seat. Efforts to reach both candidates were unavailing.

The district will hold a budget hearing May 13 at 8 p.m. at The Wheatley School at 11 Bacon Road, Old Westbury. Board members will present a proposed budget at the meeting.

District residents are set to vote on the budget and elect two trustees on May 21 between 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at The Wheatley School.
