B-P school board has new president

BROADALBIN – The Broadalbin-Perth Central School District Board of Education has a new president.

Robert Decker led his first regular board meeting Monday.

Decker took on his new role after the board’s reorganizational meeting July 7.

Former board President Edward Szumowski, took over Decker’s old position on the board and is now vice president.

“I like the idea of cycling through.. it’s very interesting,” Decker said. “It gives me the opportunity to learn the operation from a different perspective.”
