SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The deadline to file for a seat on the Springfield Board of Education was Monday July 31 at 4 p.m. at the Union County Clerk’s office. Three seats are open for the coming election in November. Only two residents filed petitions to run. They are incumbent Marc Miller of 50 Redwood Road and Kristy Rubin of 47 Skylark Road. She is running for the first time.
Marc Miller said, " When I first ran for the Board of Education, I did it because I wanted a way to donate my time and effort to the community that I love, and I felt this was the best way to positively affect the children of Springfield. After three years of contributions, I am happy to continue to volunteer."
One position remains vacant. It can be filled by a write-in candidate in the November election.
The two Board of Education members not running for another term are Elissa Zylbershlag and Steven Wolcott.
