BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Current board of education member Lisa Weinstock has withdrawn her name from the November ballot, and will not be running for another term.
Weinstock had initially filed a petition to run for a second term this year, but has now officially withdrawn. She will finish her term Dec. 31.
“I am no longer a candidate for the board of education because I am going to pursue other opportunities,” she said. “I believe I have made a difference to this district, relative to compliance, fiscal responsibility and policy.”
Weinstock was one of four people running to fill two seats representing Bridgewater on the board of education.
Still on the ballot to represent Bridgewater are incumbent Barry Walker, Evan Lerner and Zachary Malek.
Incumbent Ann Marie Mead is running unopposed for one open seat representing Raritan on the board.
Elections will be Nov. 7.
