This year’s Voorhees Board of Education election is vitally important, with candidates expressing very different opinions and concerns. Six candidates (including one write-in candidate) are competing for three available spots. School board elections are easy to overlook, especially if you do not have children in K-8. But I encourage all residents to familiarize themselves with the candidates and vote based upon who they want to determine not just the future of our children, but to represent our town.
If you’re looking for more information beyond what you can find online, there will be a Meet the Candidates event on Oct. 12 in the Voorhees Middle School Cafeteria at 7 p.m.
