Letter to TAP M/SH Editor: Former Millburn Township Board of Education President Endorses Upcoming Bond Referendum

September 22, 2016

Dear Editor, 

As someone who was a member of the Board of Education at the time of the 2010 redistricting, I want to give some context that connects that event to the upcoming referendum vote on Tuesday September 27.  I want to reemphasize how painful the 2010 redistricting truly was.  We needed to move 75 kids out of the Glenwood School to alleviate the overcrowding there, and ...
