The East Greenbush Central School District Board of Education accepted the resignation of board member Deanna Muth at its public meeting on Wednesday, October 20.
Ms. Muth will be relocating out of the district and as result, is no longer eligible to serve on the board as a non-resident of the district. Her resignation, effective Friday, October 15, and a process for filling her seat on the board, was discussed at the board’s public meeting on Wednesday evening.
“I am grateful for having had the opportunity to serve for the past two years,” Ms. Muth wrote in her resignation letter to Board of Education President Michael Buono. “When my daughters attended the district, I knew that they received an excellent well-rounded education. After serving on the board, it is obvious that it only happened because of the countless hours and dedication of the top-notch Administrative team in Central Administration and at every single school building within the district. I wish everyone continued success for the remainder of the school year.”
Ms. Muth was elected to the Board of Education in May 2019.
“On behalf of the Board, I want to thank Deanna for her service to our school community and volunteer work as a board member,” said Mr. Buono. “We are grateful for her dedication and the giving of her time as a representative of the community to help guide the district during these difficult times.”
The Board of Education is seeking volunteers interested in filling Ms. Muth’s position. The person who is selected by the Board will serve until the next regular election on May 17, 2022.
Interested volunteers should submit a letter of interest and resume to the District Clerk’s office at East Greenbush Central School District, 29 Englewood Ave., East Greenbush, NY 12061 by Monday, November 8. For more information call 518-207-2535.
To be eligible, a candidate must be:
- age 18 or older
- a resident of the East Greenbush Central School District for a continuous and uninterrupted period of at least one year

- able to read and write
The board will then meet with those interested volunteers who have submitted their letter of interest and resume and select a candidate. The candidate chosen to fill the vacancy has the option of running for one of three available seats in the 2022 election.
