The Union County Clerk’s Office has confirmed that Angel Boose, the only female BOE candidate, withdrew her petition this afternoon to run for the Board Of Education.
The deadline for having a BOE candidate withdraw from the election was today, September 4th, at 4 p.m. There was a previous deadline to withdraw but that date, August 25th, would have allowed for someone to run as a replacement. Today’s withdrawal does not permit that option, so this year three (3) candidates will be running for three seats on the BOE. Those candidates are:
- Kevin Cancino
- Troy Gerten
- Sundjata Sekou
Barring a write-in campaign that successfully garners an eligible Roselle Park resident more votes than any of the official candidates, all three men will be serving on the Board in 2016.
The BOE election is the same day as the general election which is Tuesday, November 3, 2015.
