Sunil Subbakrishna to step down from Scarsdale Board of Education after one term.
February 26, 2014. Scarsdale School Board member Sunil Subbakrishna has informed the School Board Nominating Committee (SBNC) that, for professional reasons, he will not be a candidate this year for reelection to the Scarsdale Board of Education. Mr. Subbakrishna has served on the School Board since 2011 and, although eligible for renomination, has decided not to seek a second term.
In 2014 the SBNC will nominate two candidates for election to the Board of Education. Jonathan Lewis, another member of the School Board eligible for renomination this year, previously
announced that he would not seek a second term. As a result, there will be two open seats on the School Board this year. The SBNC will review this development as it moves into the next stage of its nominating process.
SBNC Chair, John Clapp, stated: “On behalf of the SBNC, I would like to thank Sunil for his service to the school district and the community. While we would like to be considering him for renomination, we respect his decision to step down at the end of the current school year and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Mr. Subbakrishna said: “I would like to thank the community for giving me the opportunity to serve on the board for three years. I truly appreciate the time I have spent on issues related to the education of our children. It is fulfilling and rewarding work. I regret that I will not be able to continue for the next three years, but the professional demands of my career make it impossible for me to continue. I would also like to thank my board colleagues who have made this such an enjoyable experience for me, and who will remain my friends when my service is complete.”
