Lawandy and Munoz for the Board of Education

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter as a private citizen, a former teacher, retired Deputy Chief of Police and taxpayer. These are not the opinions of the Board of Education, only my own.

I would like to endorse Mike Lawandy and Chris Munoz for re-election as trustees for the Bayonne Board of Education.

Mike Lawandy is an engineer and project manager. If re-elected he will be the longest serving trustee on the board. His experience and financial acumen are invaluable. Mike is always questioning how a decision will affect the district’s budget. He was among the first to grasp how bad the financial crisis that we discovered was and what steps needed to be taken. He knew the faster we took those measures, the sooner we would recover. And he was absolutely right. The vast majority of teachers who were RIFed have been rehired. Mike works on the Finance, Building and Grounds and Superintendent’s Evaluation committees as well as serving on the negotiations team. He is one of the busiest of the trustees.

Christopher Munoz is a public school teacher in Hoboken and the parent of two students in the Bayonne school system. He was one of the first trustees to be elected to the board after the changeover from an appointed board. He has served on the Superintendent Search and Evaluation committees, Board Evaluation committee, Buildings and Grounds committee and the Arts and Athletics committee. He helped to raise the passing grade from 65 to 70.

Both Mike and Chris have worked and continue to work hard on the district’s financial health. They know a return to full fiscal stability is the only way to ensure scholastic opportunity for all the district’s students.

There are also other candidates who merit consideration because they have no political ties to anyone: Daniel Acosta, Michael Alonso, John Cupo, Anthony D’Amico, and Sharma Montgomery are all independent voices that would like to represent the voters’ interests on the board. I wish them well.

The most important thing to remember as this election draws near is that the voters of Bayonne want candidates who are elected by the people, not selected by politicians.

Please vote for Mike Lawandy, Chris Munoz, and a third independent candidate of your choice. Thank you for your consideration.

Charles Ryan, Bayonne Board of Education Trustee
