FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Amy Boroff, who on Monday evening was recognized as Fanwood's Volunteer of the Month of September, has begun a write-in campaign for an open seat on the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Board of Education (BOE).

While I come to the table with fresh eyes, my passion for education and role with the Board of Education as a volunteer has provided me with knowledge and experience," Boroff wrote on her newly launched campaign site on Facebook. "We can all do a better job collaborating, holding ourselves and children accountable, and being consistent among our schools and leadership."

"I believe that a successful school system, especially one with shared services, requires consistency, accountability and most importantly communication," Boroff believes.

Known as the founder of Be Craftful and her longtime service as a Fanwood Recreation Commnissioner, Boroff graduated Cum Laude with an Elementary Education and Sociology degree from the University of Massachusetts. She served for four years on the District Legislative Team for McGinn where her daughter was a student. Boroff actively participated in the creation of SPF's Board of Education’s 2014 Strategic Plan and hosted special needs students at Be Craftful, providing them with job experience.

Boroff says she grew up among a family of educators and administrators. She worked for several years for the non-profit Junior Achievement, which provides school districts with curriculum to educate youth on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness. She is asking voters on the Tues, Nov. 6, to write in her name to represent the Fanwood Borough and serve as a Board of Education member.

"Having missed the deadline, with your support, I will fill this empty seat and serve as a representative of Fanwood as a Board of Education member," Boroff pledges.
