Board of Ed Member Sought for 1-Year Term
With the election coming up in less than two weeks, the BOE is still accepting write-in campaigns for a vacant seat.
The Jefferson Township Board of Education is still seeking write-in campaigns for a one-year unexpired term after board member Judy Castiglione abruptly resigned last month.
At the Oct. 16 meeting, board president Ron Smith spoke about the vacant spot, and said all potential candidates should hand in a write-in campaign.
"If anyone is interested they should act accordingly because the election comes up in two weeks," he said at the meeting.
Resident Ed Quigley announced his own candidacy during the public portion of the meeting, explaining that he was inspired by a particular issue after speaking with Superintendent Joseph Kraemer.
Board members pointed out at the latest meeting that who ever wins in the election will be appointed soon after the election instead of waiting until January.
