Dunkirk School Board member stepping down

OBSERVER Photo by Jo Ward Adam Reisenweber will be departing from the Dunkirk School Board on June 30, 2019.

Adam Reisenweber is moving on.

The Dunkirk School Board member will be leaving at the end of the school year in June, as his family is moving into a different school district.

“It’s not personal, we’re just not going to be in the district anymore,” Reisenweber stated to the OBSERVER following the regular Board of Education meeting Thursday. “It was just easy for everyone that way. We bought the house recently, but we didn’t want to move the kids out until the end of the year.”

Reisenweber, who’s served on the school board for five years with one year left, went on to say that he’s sad having to leave.

“I’ve enjoyed my time. We’ve done a lot of things and I’m going to miss it.”

At this time, Reisenweber’s not sure if he’ll serve on another board in the future as he says he’s quite busy as an active member of the West Town of Dunkirk Fire Department.

“I was elected assistant chief and president this year, so we’re busy there. We are also active in Girl Scouts. And with two kids and moving to a place with six acres, there’s a lot of work to do.”
