South Orange/Maplewood Neighbors

I am asking for your vote on Tuesday, November 5, 2019 in the South Orange Maplewood School District Board of Education Election.  Your participation in this election is important as our School District embarks on a $160 million dollar facilities and integration plan.

As a father of a young family and a resident of South Orange for 39 years, I have a vested interest in our School District and it’s future.  I want to insure that our School District gives all children a high-quality, safe education that should be expected with our tax dollars.  I also want to insure that all our children and their families have a voice and can be heard.  I will insure that our children and families have a School District that meets their educational, psychological and social needs..

I am a leader.  I will listen.  I am connected to this community.  I have the experience, expertise and the time to serve on the South Orange Maplewood School District Board of Education.
