Meet the  2023-2024 School Board Candidates:

CJ Calarco

Francis CJ Calarco  My name is CJ Calarco. I have lived in Auburn for most of my life aside from going away for undergraduate work at Iona College. I returned to Auburn and worked on my Graduate Degree in education at Le Moyne College. I have since been teaching math at the High School level since 2012, and have coached several sports at different levels. I'm running for relection to continue to give back to the community that gave me the opportunities to be where I am today, with the experience of a tenured classroom teacher and coach. My goal as a board member is to maintain a common-sense perspective on the education we offer to the kids in our district to be sure they all get the types of opportunities that the community has afforded me. 

Eli Hernández

Eli Hernández Eliezer (Eli) Hernández is a career educator with experience as a teacher, mentor teacher, teacher-leader, assistant principal, principal, and district leader. For the past 23 years, Eli has dedicated himself to education. As a Spanish teacher, he created a chapter of the National Spanish Honor Society (Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica) and organized international educational trips for his students at Auburn High School. Eli was elected to the AECSD Board of Education in 2011. During his tenure on the board, he actively participated in two superintendent searches, passed eleven school budgets and two capital projects, and served on the Long-Range Planning, Audit, and Policy Committees. Additionally, Eli served as Vice President of the Board of Education for two years. Eli is a member of the Board of Directors for the National Math Foundation. He is the secretary, Spanish Language delegate, and on the New York State Association for Bilingual Education Board of Directors. Dr. Hernández’s vast professional experiences have contributed to the school board. He believes he can continue to impact as a board member positively.

Freddie Wilson lll

Freddie Wison lll   My name is Freddie Wilson III, I have been a resident of Auburn, NY, for most of my life. I am married and a proud parent of two daughters, one graduated from Auburn High School in 2021, and my youngest will be a senior in the fall of 2023.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Community and Human Services and an Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice: Police Science. By profession I am currently a Restorative Case Manager at Cayuga Centers for at-risk youth in our community.

Over the last decade, I have volunteered and served on several boards: NAACP, Auburn Sports Boosters, Human Rights Commission, Booker T. Washington Community Center, and the YMCA. I am currently a member of the HELPRA Board of Directors, Helping Empower Local People Recovery Associates.

I believe that the position of a school board member is very valuable in making decisions for the betterment of our community by helping and equipping our current students to prepare for the rest of their future and looking forward to the students yet to come. I believe we have the best administrators, teachers, and students in our community and I desire to be part of being a voice to continue that tradition here in Auburn.
