As my three year term on the Middletown Board of Education comes to a close this year, I have decided to use the experience I have garnished as a BOE Member to serve the residents of Middletown in a new way. I will be running for a one year term this November on the Middletown Township Committee.

Both my husband and I were raised in Middletown and are now raising our three children in the Middletown Public School District. I believe strongly in volunteerism and active parenting. I was class mom for many years, basketball coach, PTO member, assisted in running our All Volunteer Library at Harmony School, and was involved in multiple Sandy Relief programs.

Before deciding to run for BOE myself, I committed to educating myself on the intricacies of how our Board of Education works and what we as citizens of Middletown can do to make positive changes by serving on The Ad Hoc Budget Committee, the PIC Committee as well as all aspects of the Strategic Planning Committee for Middletown. I attended Board Meetings regularly and familiarized myself with the ever-changing needs and challenges we face as both parents and taxpayers of Middletown.

As a Board of Education Member, I am proud of many of the accomplishments our district has accomplished during our tenure.

  • Served as President of the BOE in my second year.
  • Helped facilitate video taping and posting of all BOE Meetings to allow access to community members through the Strategic Planning Committee.
  • Voted in favor of an Energy Savings Plan that would allow the district to use solar energy to ultimately fund various lighting projects that will save taxpayers money, while making our schools ‘greener.’
  • Encouraged and voted for revisions to elementary school report cards.
  • Strengthened school security and safety by voting for and supporting overhaul of video surveillance and presence of SSO’s in all 17 schools.
  • Represented and spoke at NJSBA Conference, as all 17 schools became ‘Future Ready,’ an honor given to only 63 schools in NJ (a third of which were Middletown Schools).
  • Have attended PTO Meetings and/or Back to School Nights at all 17 Schools and made it a priority to understand the needs of each individual community.
  • Attended every Workshop and Voting Meeting in my tenure.

I have seen our community first hand come together and create positive change for both its students and its citizens. If given the opportunity, I would strive to be the kind of Township Committee Member who listens to and aides community members with their concerns, while promising to always keep an open mind and remember that flexibility and personal attention and compassion should come with all decisions, without forgetting that every dollar that we are taxed matters to the lives of our citizens.
