Board of Education Candidates are Finalized for the 2016 Elections

FLORHAM PARK, NJ- Deadline day to file the nominating petitions for the upcoming school board elections in 2016 has come and gone. Hanover Park Regional, Florham Park Borough, and East Hanover Township all have school board seats to fill and the list of candidates has now been finalized as Election Day is only a few months away.

The Hanover Park Regional Board of Education has 3 seats up for election this year with the terms of Florham Park’s Joan Seery and East Hanover’s Deborah Davis and Richard Ford ending in 2017. East Hanover will have much of the same when it comes to their representatives as incumbent board members Davis and Ford are the only two names on the ticket. Florham Park will see a bit more action as Board of Education Vice President Seery is challenged for the lone open seat by Beechwood Road resident Joanne Greene Tobias.

Keeping their streak alive, East Hanover’s local board members are also running unopposed in the upcoming election. The Board’s Vice President, Catherine Pfund-Olsen, and Board Members Anthony Barisciano and Joseph Troise will each be running for another 3 year term.

The sitting board members in East Hanover have taken great strides over recent years, such as the 1:1 Digital Device Program instated last school year. The lack of a challenger guarantees that these members and the work they have done will continue on for at least another term.

Florham Park, in a stark contrast, shows much more turmoil in this upcoming election. Board President John Carollo and Board Members Marianne Haynes and Kevin DeCoursey were all elected to Florham Park’s Board of Education in 2013. This year, only Haynes has returned to throw her name in the ring once again.

Four candidates will be vying for the three open seats on the board. Haynes, who acts as the current curriculum and transportation chair, will be sharing the ballot with Yvonne Cali of Woodbine Road, Fabienne Crimi of Briarwood Road and Nicholas Ritrivi of Elm Street.

A total of 9 Board of Education seats will be filled this year. It can be easy to get swept away in the media storm of a presidential election year; even so, it is not only the highest seat in the land that will be filled this November 8th
