Campbell Krew playing games with BOE petitions?

 
 

Plainfielders must now wonder if Board of Ed president Wilma Campbell is playing games with the petition process for the April school board elections.

More than two months after the Board surreptitiously switched the election date from November to April, petitions are still not available for those wishing to run for the three seats that are up in the April balloting (Ms. Campbell, Mr. Moore and Ms. Clarke).

A parent of children in the public schools who is interested in running for a school board seat told me that when she checked with the district for a petition last week, she was told that they would not be available until "some time in February."

When in February?

"We don't know," she was told.

Hmmm.

The deadline for candidates for the three slots to file their petitions is Tuesday, February 29.

The last day to register to vote in the April school board election is Tuesday, March 29.

The Board of Ed election itself will be held on Tuesday, April 19, from 2:00 to 9:00 PM
