TUCKAHOE, N.Y. When Tuckahoe voters go to the polls May 15 for the annual school election, they will find just one name printed on the ballot for the lone available Board of Education seat.
Michael Collins, whose partial-term appointment expires in May, faces no opposition in his bid to win a full three-year term. The deadline for filing to appear on the ballot was Monday. Someone could mount a write-in campaign.
Collins, of Tuckahoe, was sworn into office in mid-October to fill the unexpired term of Bronxville resident James Oliverio, who resigned in September after serving more than eight years on the board.
Collins is a senior attorney for a Manhattan law firm that specializes in labor and litigation.
On his first official opportunity to speak as a trustee, Collins told the board members how much he appreciated their confidence in him.
"I will do what I can to serve the kids," Collins said in October. "The whole reason I am doing this is for the benefit of the kids and the community."
