Vote for Carey P Smith
for School Board on November 5!


Dear SOMA Families:

My name is Carey Smith.  I have been a resident of South Orange, since I have been 8 years old, and therefore have lived in South Orange for 37 years and counting, and thus a by-product of our wonderful school system.

I have two girls, ages six and eleven who will be attending South Mountain and the South Orange Middle School during the 2019-2020 school year.   I attended Lehigh University and graduated from there in 1995.

I am a life-time member of the South Orange Rescue Squad, and I have a passion for helping others in their times of need.

I have held numerous leadership positions over the years:

  • President of the South Orange Rescue Squad
  • Treasurer of the South Orange Rescue Squad
  • Secretary of the South Orange Rescue Squad
  • Treasurer of the South Orange Democrats
  • Male Democratic Committee Person for the 6th District in South Orange
  • Treasurer of the South Mountain PTA
  • Parliamentarian of the South Mountain PTA
  • President of the Lehigh University Class of 1995

I am a small business owner, that provides Healthcare Consulting Services and I teach CPR, First Aid and OSHA Compliance Programs to individuals and business throughout the tri-state area.

I have decided to run for the School Board, because over the years, I have become disillusioned with the dysfunction of the District Administration and the Board of Education members.  We have not any consistent leadership at many levels in our district, which has caused our children and teachers to be forgotten or have unnecessary red-tape placed upon them to get simple things accomplished, and this I want to change and change now!

As a School Board Member, I will put our children and teacher’s first, and promote the excellence of all the schools in the district.

Thank you for your Support
Carey Smith
