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.

The third seat that will be up for grabs is currently held by board trustee and chairman of the city's planning board, Theodore Garelick.
Garelick, who has declined to refile for his position on the BOE, will also be stepping down from his position as chairman on the planning board at the end of the year, calling his time "extremely rewarding."

Garelick and Lawandy are the last remaining board members who were appointed by the mayor before the city voted to switch to an elected school board in 2014.
The remaining eight candidates vying for the three seats on the board include Daniel Acosta, Gene Perry, Dorothy Patterson, and Sharma Montgomery, and Anthony D'Amico.
There are also a number of candidates who have previously competed for a seat on the board, including John R. Cupo and Maria Valado. Michael Alonso, who running for a state Assembly seat in the 31st Legislative District, is also a candidate for school board.

The filing deadline for residents hoping to run was Monday.
The three highest vote-getters will win the three open seats on the board.
