2008 Kids First Kick-off Party

2/25/2008:

Hoboken Board of Education election is coming on April 15th, 2008!

Here’s a message from President Theresa Minutillo:

2008 Kids First Kick-Off Party

hoboken-board-of-education-theresa-minutillo.jpgJust two years ago, Kids First was a dream of positive change in the Hoboken schools. This Wednesday, with your help, we take the next step in making that dream a reality.

It is with great joy and pride that I join with Kids First Board Members Carrie Gilliard, Rose Marie Markle and Tricia Snyder in inviting you to the party:

  • When: This Wednesday, February 27th at 7pm
  • Where: Garden of Eden, 226 Washington (in the 2nd floor Community Room)

Please join us as we kick off Tricia’s campaign for re-election and meet her running mates. Together they’ll give us the support we need to put Kids First!

Doors open at 6:30. Families and Kids are welcomed and encouraged. Snacks and soda will be served.

This is the year – when we win – that we’ll have the majority we need to make a real difference for the kids, the staff, the parents and the rest of our community. Offers of help are greatly appreciated. Checks made out to Kids First 2008 will be gratefully accepted.

Election Day is April 15 – polls are open from 2pm to 9pm – NO morning voting!

Thank you as always for your support. It’s really making a difference.
Theresa Minutillo

Exactly. What are the results of those tests, and how many kids graduated with IB diplomas in, as W2 asks, the last 5 years.

Yeah, but what are the results of the test?

This is akin to saying, a bunch of students took the SAT… and we all know how well Hoboken does there.

Really? Do you have the numbers? Over the past five years say, how many diplomas?

I’m not really doubting you, but when the district fails to highlight a number, theirs usually a good reason.[/quote]

[quote comment=”70702″]One reason for low voter turnout in these school board elections is because there are just too many elections during the year. In Hoboken last year I think there were 4, maybe 5 elections including the one forced by sore-loser Campos. In California (where we had our own “mickey mouse” laws), at least the govt was smart enough to run elections together. It saves the state and cities millions of dollars in election costs such as ballots, election poll workers, duh? There is no freaking reason to not have school board, city council, city clerk, mayoral, state gov’t, Congressional, national elections on the same day…no reason, except maybe it’s too simple a solution. You would have a bigger turnout in all these races.

Someone please give me a reason why this wouldn’t work in NJ.[/quote]
