School Board Election 2010
Carl Williams — incumbent
Wlliams, a Baldwin resident for 20 years, has served as a trustee since July 2009, when he was appointed by the board to replace outgoing member James Scannell.
The 51-year-old Williams is married and has two children, one of whom attends
Baldwin High School. He has a Bachelor's Degree in Electrical Engineering from Manhattan College, and currently works as an electrical engineer for the National Grid.
For over a decade, Williams has been involved with the Baldwin PAL. He has served as soccer
commissioner and coached baseball, judo and soccer. He currently serves as second vice president on the Baldwin PAL Executive Board. He also participates in Sanitary District No. 2's annual Big Sweep event.
Williams said he is proud of the relatively low-increase budget the school board put together for next year. In another term, Williams said he would seek to get more involved with state and local organizations to help get additional aid for Baldwin schools.
"If elected, I intend to participate in the [New York State School Boards Association], [Reform Educational Financing Inequities Today] and the Long Island Coalition, which includes school boards, superintendents, teachers unions and PTAs, to lobby Albany to assume a greater share of the cost of education."
