An Elected Board of Education for Montclair

Montclair, New Jersey prides itself on being one of the most progressive and politically-engaged towns in America. Yet it is also among a small handful — fewer than 3% of municipalities in the state — where a mayor rather than voters chooses who sits on the local board of education.

Proceeds will cover the projected expenses through the certification of the petition required to trigger a referendum on converting Montclair to an elected board of education, notably legal fees for the campaign’s attorney, Judge James S. Rothschild, Jr. of leading education law firm Riker Danzig, and the technology needed for an legally-compliant online petition.

As we are aiming to begin petitioning in the coming weeks these funds are urgently needed now.

More details on the campaign — including other ways to contribute and help out — can be found at http://www.votemontclair.org/boe
