Munoz wants you to Vote

I am a father, a tax payer, a teacher, and a board member.
I was so honored to be elected by this community in 2015. To have the faith and support of people is an overwhelming and humbling experience and I am asking this community to trust me again.

Finnerty supports Munoz, Lawandy

I am writing this letter as a private citizen. My opinions do not reflect those of a trustee of the Bayonne Board of Education but rather those of a very involved and concerned citizen. The Board of Education election of 2015 was indeed a momentous one. After 37 years, the citizens of this city had the opportunity to vote for the members of the BOE. Try to remember that the purpose of having an elected board is to keep politics out of the Board election process. With any political support, invariably some cronyism will eventually find its way into the board room. Please seriously consider who you vote for this Tuesday, November 7th.

Lawandy and Munoz for the Board of Education

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter as a private citizen, a former teacher, retired Deputy Chief of Police and taxpayer. These are not the opinions of the Board of Education, only my own.

I would like to endorse Mike Lawandy and Chris Munoz for re-election as trustees for the Bayonne Board of Education.

Retired teacher supports Montgomery, Munoz in Bayonne ed board race

As a retired teacher and former president of the Bayonne Teachers Association, I have more than a passing interest in this year's Bayonne school board election. I understand the issues facing our schools and our community and I think we need strong, independent leadership to tackle the difficult challenges of recruiting a dynamic and qualified superintendent, resolving, once and for all, the longstanding and persistent imbalance in our teachers' salary guide, improving morale among our school employees and getting our district's financial house in order.

A Lesson in Politics for Bayonne

In a column in the Hudson Reporter, Al Sullivan explained a disturbing reality about this round of Board of Education elections. Al Sullivan writes:

The Nov. 7 election will mark the third year in which Bayonne voters get to choose their Board of Education members rather than having them appointed by the mayor. Bayonne residents are learning the meaning of an elected board the hard way.

Bayonne school board election will affect selection of new superintendent

Bayonne school board election will affect selection of new superintendent

Although an elected board in Bayonne has only recently been reestablished after years of being appointed by the mayor, the upcoming election will decide which people will be voting on a new schools superintendent in Bayonne.

Let’s keep the consistency: Local Parent urges Munoz to Return to School Board

My name is Melissa Godesky. My son, who has different abilities, is a student here in the Bayonne School System. He is in general education with additional pullout and therapy. I was born and raised in Bayonne and have no plans on leaving anytime soon. I am writing this letter to recognize and acknowledge all of the progress, hard work, and most important, consistency Bayonne Board of Education Trustee Christopher Munoz has demonstrated over the past two years since being elected.

Bayonne school election could be a surprise

Although the Bayonne Board of Education election has two incumbents running in a race for three seats, the race may be a tight one.

Incumbents Christopher Munoz and Mikel Lawandy should have the inside track to retain their seats in what is seen as a relatively weak field of candidates.

Munoz ran for state assembly last June in the Democratic primary, which could make him the target of revenge by the Hudson County Democratic Organization that supported his opponents.

These 10 candidates are running for 3 spots on Bayonne's school board

BAYONNE -- Two incumbents and several former Board of Education candidates have filed to run in the Nov. 7 school board election.

A total of ten people are vying for three open three-year terms come November, including current Trustees Mikel Lawandy and Christopher Munoz. Both have refiled to retain their seat on the board.

Board of Education races will be interesting

The filing deadline for November school board races comes in midsummer and so we will shortly see battle lines being drawn in several towns, including Hoboken, Jersey City, Bayonne and West New York.
