Running for School Board? Consider Ethics Code
That said, Plaintalker hopes to see a broad field of candidates and a strong voter turnout. The district will need a competent, capable school board to deal with upcoming changes coming down from Trenton and one that is able to assure the community that no personal agendas are in play.
Any board that is called on to make decisions involving millions of dollars must be of the highest caliber. Voters will have several opportunities to discern the motives and qualifications of those who file on March 1. If the district ends up with another board that ranks low with New Jersey monitors (NJQSAC), it will be on the consciences of registered voters who chose to stay home on April 20.
