UTICA – Another candidate has thrown their hat into the race for the Utica City School District Board of Education.

Briana Moriarty is a lifelong Utica resident and a 2004 graduate of Proctor High School. She graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a bachelor’s degree in history and the University of Phoenix with a master’s degree in education.

Moriarty works for the Estate Planning Law Center and also manages her family-owned business, Valentino’s Banquet Hall.

“There is a lot of development and excitement in Utica but in order to retain and attract young families we need to make improvements within our school district,” Moriarty said in a news release. “Those improvements will only come to fruition if we have a school board that is accountable, accessible and responsive to the needs and concerns of teachers, parents and students.”

Moriarty says she’s grateful for the Utica School District helping to shape her into the person she is today, and serving on the school board would be a great opportunity for her to give back to the community.

There are three Board of Education seats up for election on May 15. Two of them are currently held by Don Dawes and Michael Paul, whose five-year terms expire this year, and the third position is the remaining three years of former board member Michael Galimo's term.

Dawes has announced he is seeking re-election to his position, and Utica residents Anthony LaPolla and Joseph Hobika Jr. have also announced their candidacies for the Board of Education race.
