What's Your Number One Issue for BOE Election?

First November election for school candidates

A League of Women Voters candidates' debate is coming for Toms River Regional candidates, 7 p.m. Oct. 25 in the Ocean County Freeholders Meeting Room.

At the League of Women Voters school candidates' night last year, questions focused on a variety of subjects. Are last year's issues similar to this year's?

Then, Residents wanted to know how the candidates would address the wake of the Ritacco scandal. They wanted to know if candidates felt the school board and district needed more transparency in their actions. And they wanted to know if they had any conflicts of interest, such as having relatives employed by the district.

How would the candidates address a growing budget and the tax impact on cash-strapped residents? How should it recruit — and retain — the best and brightest teachers?

Maybe it's questions of local impact, and also issues on the national and state scene, such as vouchers, tenure reform and state aid, that are most important to you?

We want to know what you're number one question is. What school issue do you feel is tops to you as a resident of Toms River?

It's our question of the day.

Please don't apply for a teaching job in Toms River. If you do, our kids are doomed.

When are still getting a good rate on insurace and the district keeps the tax rate low. The Board did what it was supposed to. This was a one man deal. I give them credit, except for Loreen who can never speak for herself, for staying on the board. The budget came is at leaa than 2%. Keep them doing what they are doing.
