Livingston BOE Says Goodbye to Board President Ronnie Spring

December 11, 2013 at 2:14 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - Ronnie Spring led the final 2013 Board of Education meeting for his final time on Mon., Dec. 9. He was gifted with a crystal gavel and gift certificate to his favorite fencing club.

Spring joined the BOE in 2010, and lost re-election in November 2013 to challenger Art Altman.

“I had a few reasons for coming to the meeting today and one was to thank Ronnie Spring for his energy and commitment,” said Livingston resident Bernard Searle. “He will be missed.”

Searle added, “Ron, you can always run again.”

“I couldn’t be happier knowing that my kids are in the hands of the people at this table,” said Spring, who has two children in the Livingston schools and a 1-year-old. “I grew up here and my kids are going to grow up here.”

The BOE ended the meeting by thanking Spring for his advice, friendship and leadership.  

Leslie Winograd said, “After the past almost four years, you have been a remarkable board member and friend. I have learned so much from you and I will miss your presence at this table. It has been a very wonderful experience working with you.”

Echoing Searle, Barry Funt said. “You can always run again,” and then joked that he hoped Spring wouldn’t run in 2014 when Funt is up for re-election.

“It was great to get to know you,” said Funt. “It’s going to be a big loss.”

“Thank you,” said Spring. “I wish my wife was here to hear all of this,” he joked.

Spring said that his immediate plans post-presidency are to spend time with his family and to attend future BOE meetings.

“I plan to watch the board do their best for the students,” said Spring. “I am honored to have been a board member and our kids are lucky to have this board.”
