Two people are running uncontested in the Board of Education election to be held April 20. Michele Lenhard will be running for her second term on the Board. Charlie Reilly, who served on the Board previously, from 1990 to 2005, submitted his petition for candidacy. Joseph Vallerini will not be seeking re-election. Yesterday at 4:00 was the deadline for submitting petitions.
That's all the news for now...I'm off to Summit to hear the new Education Commissioner and other legislators tell us what they think is ahead for school funding and regulation in New Jersey.
