BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, NJ - Want to hear what the four candidates seeking election to three, three-year terms on the Bernards Township Board of Education have to say?

Voters can meet the candidates and hear a discussion about the issues at a school board candidates' forum scheduled for 7 p.m. next Monday, Oct. 13, at Ridge High School, 268 S. Finley Ave. in Basking Ridge.

The four candidates seeking three-year terms on the board include newcomers John Fry and Michael Storms, who will compete with board incumbents Priti Shah and Linda Wooldridge for the three full terms set to begin on Jan. 1, 2015.

The candidates' forum will be sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Somerset County, and the Ridge High School Empowerment for Political Participation club.

Two other board members, appointed during the past year to fill vacancies created after other board members resigned, also are seeking re-election to partial unexpired terms. However, Board President Robin McKeon said on Monday night that those board members won't be part of the forum. McKeon said the candidates, who aren't facing any competition in running for the unexpired seat, had decided they don't want to confuse candidates about who is running for the contested seats.

Board member Karen J. Gray is running in November to fill out the last two years of Christopher Viereck's term. Karen Richman, also appointed to the board earlier this year to fill a spot left after the resignation of Board Member Audrey Sherwyn, is seeking election to fill out the final year of Sherwyn's term.
