I have known Patricia (Pat) Belenski for eight years. Our children are friends and have gone through the school system together to date. Through all that time she has been active in every aspect possible when it comes to our children’s well being, from town hall to the Board of Education. She is helpful, understanding, compassionate, considerate, responsible and sympathetic to all. She has never been judgmental, only fair. She is a team player and has supported all who have either sought her advice or her help. Ms. Belenski’s background in psychology will help immensely in not only dealing with children but dealing with the parents and other concerned citizens of Secaucus. She will be a tremendous asset being on the board. Her achievements and accomplishments speak for themselves. This is one parent with two children in our school system that will support her and encourage others for the vote of Patricia Belenski.
