Unprecedented Bipartisan Letter of Support for 3 Edison BOE Candidates - Araujo, Brescher & Ward

Keith Hahn, Edison Democratic Organization Chairman
Sylvia Engel, Edison Republican Committee Chairwoman
William Araujo J-1, Richard Brescher J-2, Theresa Ward J-3 candidates for Edison BOE receive the bipartisan endorsement of Keith Hahn, Democratic Chair and Sylvia Engel, Republican Chair.

As with any election these days, stabilizing taxes is one of the most important issues with any voter and this year’s Board of Education race is no different. Most of you are probably not aware that the Board of Education budget is $234 million dollars or 5.198 cents per $100 of assessed value. Compare that to the Municipal budget of $128.1 million or $2.120 cents per $100 of assessed value and you can see the majority of your tax bill goes to the Board of Education.

Until last year the school board election was held the third Tuesday in April when voter turnout was minimal and much easier to influence. As of November 2015, your school board election is now held on Election Day in November where voter turnout is much higher, harder to influence and at the same time as our municipal mayor and council elections.

As the Democratic Chairman in New Jersey's fifth largest municipality along with my counterpart Chairwoman Sylvia Engel of the Republican party we are proud to endorse William Araujo, Richard Brescher, and Theresa Ward as part of a bipartisan effort to stabilize your local taxes and put your children ahead of partisan politics. Each of these candidates has a unique skill set that collectively will allow them to stabilize the largest portion of your tax bill, fight for increased state aid and put your child's future ahead of partisan politics.
