NORCROSS HAILS SCHOOL DISTRICTS MOVING APRIL ELECTIONS, ENCOURAGES OTHERS TO FOLLOW SUIT

(TRENTON) – Senator Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) today applauded the more than half of school districts statewide that adopted resolutions to move their local school board elections to November. Over two-thirds of the districts statewide elected to eliminate the costly practice of holding a special election in April, saving taxpayers significant money.

“The residents of New Jersey expect their government officials to slash any unnecessary costs we can find, and this is an obvious one,” said Norcross, who sponsored the election-date change. “I commend these school boards for acting quickly in the interest of taxpayers.”

The New Jersey Department of Education has issued guidelines for the process of moving the school board elections, and recommends that February 17 should be the cut-off date for this year. School boards, municipalities and voters can opt to move the election for 2013 at any time.
