By signing this petition, you are aiding in the call for Peter Tufano to be removed immediately from his seat on the Monroe Township Board of Education. Mr. Tufano has made countless irresponsible and derogatory remarks in the Monroe Township Voice Facebook group with the complete confidence of a man abusing a position of power. This position is a luxury, not a right, and it is not permanent. Peter Tufano knows this, even threatening to proceed with a lawsuit for defamation when his words were reposted exactly as written to public social media sites.


The Board of Education code of conduct instructs Board members to "avoid making defamatory statements about the Board of Education, the school district, employees, students, or their families." Mr. Peter Tufano has violated this code many times over: verbally and sexually harassing Monroe citizens online, making openly racist statements, and personally threatening those who dare to disagree with him. 


The Board of Education exists to educate and protect the students of Monroe Township; Mr. Tufano has publicly called for those students to "remain silent on their opinions and views for the future of the community." Public education serves to integrate young people into their communities, and prepares them to take active, leading roles in society. Mr. Tufano has made it clear that he does not believe in these ideals. Nobody, regardless of political ideologies, should be permitted to hold a public position with the education system if their main goal is not to serve, protect, and educate the student body.


By signing to remove Peter Tufano from the Board, you are actively taking a step to better educate the children and young adults who will one day shape the future.
