Voter's Guide: Hauppauge School Budget, Board Election

What you need to know for Tuesday's vote.

Hauppauge residents will vote on the school district’s $104.44 million proposed budget for the 2014-15 school year on Tuesday.

The proposal calls for a 2.56 percent increase in spending over the current year and carries a 2.14 percent tax levy increase, which is within the state's tax cap. If approved, school taxes for the average homeowner would rise by about $125. 

Four candidates–incumbents Susan B. Hodosky and Geri Richter and challengers Lawrence Crafa and James Kiley–are running for two seats on the Hauppauge Board of Education. 

Polls are open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.  at Whiporwil School. Find more information on the proposed budget on the district's website here
