So, now we know that there will be four candidates for the two open seats on the Ridgewood Board of Education. Sheila Brogan and myself are incumbents running for re-election. The challengers are Gerald Clark and Christine Krauss. Click here to read the story on Ridgewood Patch.
Looks like we'll have a "campaign season" after all...HSA meetings, coffees, debate, emails, phone calls, letters. It should be interesting. I don't really understand the phenomenon that results in uncontested elections some years and contested elections other years...just another "Ridgewood Tradition," I guess.
I'll start posting the dates for various events. If you're interested, you can "like" my page on Facebook to receive additional updates. Or just come back here. I'll start posting more on the issues -- although anybody who wants to know how I feel can just read the past posts on this blog. Any questions? Post them here, on my Facebook page, email me, call me, Tweet me (@lauriegood1)...there are so many ways to get info from and about candidates these days.
