Electing a Board of Education

Vote Montclair’s current focus is helping Montclair join 98% of the other municipalities in New Jersey where local boards of education are elected by voters rather than appointed by the mayor.

Following a series of public surveys, community outreach and research into the many related legal and technical questions, in February we launched an official petition to trigger a referendum on the issue, and in May were informed by the Township that the measure had qualified for inclusion on this November’s ballot.

You can read our brief “closing argument” in favor of an elected BOE here, and for more information on the legal and technical issues related to the proposed change please consult this F.A.Q.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to help make sure that this effort succeeds, please consider volunteering or making a donation.
