Every year there is an important Board of Education election. This April 16, seven candidates are vying for the available three seats.
Tremendous educational progress has been made in the Hoboken Public Schools over the last eight years which we need to continue.
Having served as Board President since 1994, I am in the unique position of knowing all the candidates. They are all good people and would potentially serve the community well.
It is my personal recommendation though, that we need to elect the most experienced and independent individuals to be board members right now. Carrie Gilliard (7A), Carmelo Garcia (6A) and Jack Raslowsky (5A) are the right candidates. All three are proven leaders who will represent our children and our community with honor, fairness and dignity.
On April 16, I ask you to please vote 5-6-7 for our children's future.
Also, please vote "yes" on the budget question. Next year's budget represents "no tax increase" to you, the taxpayer for the ninth consecutive year.
I thank you in advance for your continued support.
