ROME, NY - The Rome NAACP held a virtual “Meet the Candidates” on Monday via Zoom so the public could get to know the people who are running for the Rome school board.
There are currently five candidates running for three open seats on the Board.
They are Dr. Stephen Hampe, Elena Cardwell-Reddick, Craig Ferretti, Felicia James-Williams, and Anna Megerell.
The candidates answered a variety of questions from the community ranging from why they think they're qualified to be a board member, their thoughts on school resource officers, and how they would help students deal with the strain of learning during the pandemic.
The election for the school board will be held on May 18.
