BERNARDS TWP., NJ - While seven candidates competed to fill a vacancy on the Board of Education earlier this spring, only two candidates filed to be placed on this November's ballot for three available positions.

Incumbents Linda Wooldridge and Jennifer Korn - who was chosen from among the seven candidates this May to finish up the remainder of Priti Shah's term - filed for re-election, said Schools Superintendent Nick Markarian.

Those two candidates will be seeking election unopposed for three-year terms, while no candidates filed for the third available BOE seat up for election this year, Markarian said.
