BERNARDS TOWNSHIP, NJ -- Longtime member Michael Byrne said Monday night he wouldn’t seek another term on the Bernards Township Board of Education.
Byrne, who said he started serving in the mid-1980s, is the most senior member on the board.
Three three-year terms will be filled in the election that will be on the Nov. 5 general election ballot. Petitions to put names on the ballot must be received in the county clerk’s office by 4 p.m. Monday, July 29.
Karen Gray, currently the board vice-president and chair of the curriculum committee, said she would run for another term.
Suzanne Schafer Skalski, who won election last November and began a one-year term in January, said she would seek a full three-year term. She fills the seat left by Beverly Darvin Cwerner, who didn’t seek another term after serving for 10 years.
Prospective candidates must have lived in town for at least one year, have no pending claims against the board and obtain a minimum of 10 signatures on their petition.
No one has filed as of Tuesday afternoon, said a worker at the Somerset County Board of Elections.
