Board of Ed Elections & School Budget Vote Results are IN

| No Comments
The 2011 Board of Education elections have been completed. The three incumbent Board members have won back their seats and Metuchen has approved the school budget. Here are the numbers at this time. Absentee votes are yet to be counted so the projected winners pending absentee ballots are as follows:

Arthur Flaherty, Jr. - 1181 votes
Jackie Gibson - 1018 votes
Dan Benderly - 999 votes
Mark Camera - 769 votes

School Budget

Yes = 1118
No   =  553

Metuchen Matters will update these totals when the absentee votes are in and everything is official. We estimate that the percentage of registered voters who turned out for this election was about 22%, 5% estimated to be absentee voters. Why can't we get more residents to come out and vote for something that is so important to our community?? MM would love to know what you think! You can comment here or check out our Facebook page.

Metuchen Matters would like to thank the candidates for their participation in our election coverage and we wish all the candidates well in their future endeavors.
