Nine candidates will vie for three seats on the Gloucester City Board of Education, and voters will decide on the 2011-12 school budget during the annual School Election Wednesday, April 27, from 2 to 9 p.m.
This is the first time in recent memory that the election has not been on a Tuesday – but the school district did confirm it will be on a Wednesday.
This is true for the elections in Brooklawn, Bellmawr, Mount Ephraim and Westville as well.
Seeking three, three-year terms on the School Board are incumbents Kathleen McHugh, Robert H. Bennett Sr. and Jacqueline Borger and newcomers John P. Schmidt, Amelia Stebner, Shawn Mahoney, Eric Cassidy, Gina Levins and Kelly Erlink.
Everyone is encouraged to come out and vote.
As for Brooklawn voters, there will be no tax increase if the school budget is approved.
