To The Editor:
As we move into the final week of the 2016 election cycle, it’s important to remember that there are very important down ballot races to consider. Every voter in Bayonne has the opportunity to select four new members of the Board of Trustees for the Bayonne school system. Voters will be choosing three 3-year term members and one 2-year term member. There are some very serious issues facing our district this year, not the least of which is the ongoing negotiations of the teachers’ contract and a search for a new Superintendent of Schools. It is imperative that we choose Trustees that are capable of and committed to doing the work that it will take to be successful in these endeavors. The future of our schools and community depends on getting the right people in place to move us forward, people who have a vision, can take action, and deliver results to Bayonne. Thank you for your consideration. Please select 3J, 7J and 8J on your ballots for the three 3-year terms on your ballot.

Candidate for Trustee of Bayonne BOE
