Meet the Board of Mountainside Education Candidates

If you are a proponent of democracy, now is a great time to be living in Mountainside.

This Tuesday, Oct. 13, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Media Center at Beechwood Elementary School, Mountainside will be home to everything that makes America great. Tuesday the Mountainside PTA will host a "Meet the Candidates" night for school board candidates.

There has not been a night like this for four years in Mountainside. And if you look across the state, you won't find many other events like this—where challengers with a passion for progress are discussing new ideas and new approaches with incumbents currently sitting on the Board of Ed.

It's exciting. It's fun. It's an opportunity for all of us.

Call a babysitter. Kiss the kids goodnight early. Come be part of a proud moment in Mountainside's trajectory as a growing borough. 

 Our hard-working PTA has graciously organized the event, and for the first time, all questions will come exclusively from you: The residents of Mountainside sitting in the audience. (The event will also be televised and aired on tape delay on TV35.)

For everyone who has been so kind to stop us on the bus commuter line or on the soccer fields with questions and comments, and for anyone wondering about what's up with the then, now, next of our educational offerings in Mountainside, Tuesday is your shot.

Let's prove that we really do care about Strong Schools, Strong Town. 

 Jordan Hyman is a candidate for the Mountainside Board of Education in the approaching Nov. 3 election. He will be one of four candidates at "Meet the Candidates" night at 7:30 pm this coming Tuesday at Beechwood Elementary.

As a college admissions representative the first question most students would ask me was whether ...

Colleen Mahr Has Paid Her Dues, Earned Peoples’ Trust, and Left a Track Record of Success

February 20, 2018

Dear Editor:

As a 26-year-old Scotch Plains resident who cares more about the well-being of our town than about local politics, I am extremely disappointed that the Scotch Plains Democratic Committee leadership has decided to abandon Colleen Mahr in her run for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee.
