Kids First Candidates Kick Off Campaign
It's election season in Hoboken. Kids First kicked off its campaign on Saturday.
The Kids First school board candidates kicked off their campaign this weekend in anticipation of the November 6 elections.
These are the first elections since the Hoboken Board of Education voted to move the elections from April to November.
Jean Marie Mitchell, who served on the BoE once before, Tom Kluepfel—one of the founders of the Elysian Charter School—and sitting board member Ruth McAllister.
More than 70 people, including many Hoboken notables and sitting Kids First school board members. Council members Jennifer Giattino, Carol Marsh and Peter Cunningham also attended the event.
Kluepfel initally ran as an independent, but joined the Kids First ticket after sitting school board member Theresa Minutillo announced that she would not be running for re-election.
