Keep Board of Education Elections in November in Old Bridge!

Tracy Freno started this petition to Old Bridge Township Council

Currently, Board of Education elections are held in November when there is strong voter representation and the residents of Old Bridge have the opportunity to decide who they feel will best serve the children of our community at the same time as they vote for other elected officials. There are members of the Township Council who are proposing a resolution to force the Old Bridge School District to move Board of Education elections to April instead of November. This attempt to repress voter turnout is an unnecessary measure that will cost our school district $60,000-$75,000 every year, and will negatively affect the children of Old Bridge. The implications of moving Board of Education elections to April may cause our schools to lose $2 MILLION in local tax revenue - this is in addition to the dramatic recent decrease in state aid. This will not only decrease home values in Old Bridge, but will also ultimately have a lasting negative impact on families, teachers, and our entire community.

Please sign this petition in an effort to demonstrate to the Township Council that the residents of Old Bridge believe it is in the best interest of the community to keep Board of Education elections in November.
