Local Government 03.24.22

My name is Adam Stewart and I am running for Averill Park Board of Ed.

 I attended RPI back in the ‘80’s and fell in love with this area.  I moved to AP over 10 years ago with my wife and son because of its top rated school system.  As my son has progressed through Miller Hill, Algonquin, and now APHS, I have never been disappointed by the quality of his education.  I want to ensure that quality remains high, while controlling the associated costs (taxes). 

 During my time as an AP resident, I have watched our State constantly change the amount of money they provide to our schools.  I will work hard to ensure we always get our fair share of the money that WE have paid to the State. 

 I’ve spent my career growing local software companies to ensure our shareholders got a great return on their investments.  Most recently, I was on the executive teams at Autotask and then Datto, where we completed a successful initial public offering (IPO) of stock. 

 I have a long track record of managing budgets, projects and people (including teams in the US, China, India, England, Israel, Denmark).  I enjoy motivating teams to achieve great things while having fun.  My success in business has provided me with the opportunity to retire early.  Now I want to bring my business skills to help our schools.

 One of our district goals is “Students will graduate college and career ready”.  While many of our students will leave the area to attend college, many still will stay in our community to attend HVCC or work in local industries like construction, food service, mining, or others.  I want to make sure that ALL of our students have the skills they need to make good financial and business decisions to be wildly successful.

 I will make sure that we get the highest possible value and result for our tax dollars, and I’ll treat every tax dollar like it is my own, just as I have always done in my business career. 

 Please vote for Adam Stewart for Averill Park Board of Education on May 17.
