One of Western New York’s longest- serving school board presidents will retain his seat for another year, as the Cleveland Hill School Board unanimously re-elected Robert Polino during its reorganization meeting Tuesday.

“I’m quite honored that the board trusts me in the position,” Polino said after the meeting. “It’s shown consistency all these years, and it’s helped us through all those tough times.”

Polino, who works in sales, was first elected to the board in 1992 and began another three-year term this week. He was initially elected president of the board in 1999. He’s been re-elected every year since.

Thomas Kulaszewski was unanimously elected vice president, a seat that he’s held for nearly a decade. An employee of the Boys and Girls Club, Kulaszewski was first elected to the board in 1997.
