“Education is vital to the quality of life in New Jersey; and local school boards have a direct impact on educational quality,” explained New Jersey School Boards Association President John Bulina. “However, school board membership is not easy, and the job is not for everyone. The issues facing our public schools require a strong commitment of time and energy by all who are elected to their local school boards.

“If you find satisfaction in serving your community, and have a sincere interest in education and the well-being of your community’s children, I urge you to consider running for school board office,” he said.

Information about school board candidacy can be obtained at the NJSBA website:, or at the Union County Clerk’s website:  School Board Election Information
