Plainfield teachers' union endorses Board of Ed candidates

The PEA released its 2018 Board of Ed endorsements
Sunday evening.

The Plainfield Education Association (PEA), which represents Plainfield public school district teachers and support staff, released its endorsements in the 2018 Board of Ed election Sunday evening.

The union adopted the recommendations of its screening committee, which was
chaired by Lisa Logan-Leach.

The PEA endorsements for the three three-year seats are --

  • Melba Mullins (3-1)
  • Rebecca Perkins (2-1)
  • Timothy Priano (5-1)
“The committee was impressed with Ms. Mullins and Ms. Perkins both being fellow educators and NJEA members. Ms. Perkins also served as a board member in Warren previously. Mr. Priano has been an active member in the Plainfield community with the League of Women Voters and the DuCret School of Art. Ms. Mullins is also a Cedarbrook Elementary School parent,” said Ms. Logan-Leach.

“Educators and students within Plainfield Public Schools are facing larger class sizes, fewer electives and reduced resources due to financial decisions made by former administrations and the board. The candidates who we have endorsed are committed to ensuring our resources are available and targeted to the classroom,” Logan-Leach continued.

The union did not make any endorsement in the race for the one-year unexpired term.

The endorsement concludes, "PEA knows the value of working in campaigns to ensure educators and the community elect the candidates who value a strong public school system and its staff. We are excited to endorse Mullins, Perkins and Priano."
