Kids First Changes Ticket for Election; Minutillo Not Running for School Board
School Board member Theresa Minutillo has decided not to seek another term.
Kids First announced its new slate for the School Board elections in November on Monday morning, according to a press release from school board member Ruth McAllister.
Tom Kluepfel—one of the founders of the Elysian Charter School and the parent of a Hoboken High student—will run on the Kids First ticket.
Minutillo, whose term was also up and who had been planning to run as of June, will not seek another term.
As of June, Kluepfel was planning to run independently.
Now, he has been added to the Kids First ticket.
"Although I was saddened to hear that long time friend and colleague Theresa Minutillo decided not to seek re-election, I fully understand the need for her to take this time and focus on her family and career," McAllister wrote. "I certainly appreciate her past efforts and the positive impact she had on the Hoboken Public Schools."
Former school board member Jean Marie Mitchell, who served a one year term before not being re-elected last year, will also be running on the Kids First slate.
