• Voters Choose Valente, Ciancio and Math for BOE


    Two incumbents and a newcomer have been selected by the voters of District 50 to serve four years terms on the Board of Education.

    Larry Dean “Dino” Valente, Ken Ciancio and Max Math received the three highest vote totals in last week’s election. Valente and Ciancio are already on the Board, while Math will replace Ruben Pacheco who withdrew from the race last month.

    The other candidate on the ballot was Paola Urgiles.

    The three will join Ryan McCoy and Joe Davidek on the Board and will be sworn into office at a special Board of Education meeting scheduled for Monday, November 30. Leadership positions will also be selected at the meeting.

    Final, official results are not in, but overall results are not expected to change. The latest available numbers from the Adams County Clerk and Recorder are posted below.

    The election of Math means the continuation of a rather unique trend for the District in that all of its members are graduates of Adams County Schools.

    All three shared their thoughts with the Insider.


    Dino Valente: I want to thank the voters for placing their trust in me to continue to serve as their voice on the District 50 school board for another four years.  I look forward to the work on behalf of our students, families, staff and our community


    Ken Ciancio: I would like to personally thank the voters of the District for entrusting me with the education of our children. It is a responsibility I do not take lightly. I will work tirelessly to ensure our children receive the very best education possible.


    Max Math: Thank you to everyone for all your help with this campaign.  I look forward to working with all of you over the next four years.
