Board of Ed Candidates Forum
TONIGHT at Stevens’ Kidde Hall!
Twelve people are running for Hoboken Board of Education this month. Can you name them? Do you know what they really stand for? If you’re like most people I know (outside of political sycophants who vote for whomever their “Dear Leader” tells them to), you probably haven’t made your mind up yet about which four buttons to push in the voting booth.
Want to make an informed decision?
Then show up to the one and only candidates forum Monday night – April 12th. A quarter of your taxes pay for schools. Slogans and brand names don’t make policy – people do.
Meet the people and decide for yourself. Award-winning documentary filmmaker and occasional Onion News Network satirist Bob Bowdon will moderate the event (and his film “The Cartel” is playing for one night only at Clearview Cinemas).
The Hoboken Quality of Life Coalition, People for Open Government, Hoboken Grace Community Church and Stevens Institute of Technology are the sponsors. Due to a scheduling conflict the event will NOT be held at the usual spot at Our Lady of Grace Church. Instead it will be at Kidde Hall on the Stevens Campus. With so many candidates vying for four open seats, the forum will be broken up into two parts:
First Segment – from 6:30pm to 8pm
- Kyelia Colon
- John Forsman
- Ken Howitt
- Jean Marie Mitchell
- Irene Sobolov
- Kathleen Tucker
Second Segment – from 8:15pm to 9:45pm
- Leon Gold
- Perry Lin
- John Madigan
- Elizabeth Markevitch
- Rose Marie Markle
- Patricia Waiters
Questions will be taken from the audience and admission is free.
Directions to Kidde Hall on the Stevens Campus:
Go east on 6th St. past River Terrace to the Gatehouse entrance of Stevens. Go through the gate. Take the left walkway going up the hill. You will pass a u-shaped landscaped area around the buildings on the left. At the northern end of the landscaped area is Kidde Hall. It is immediately opposite the large, round Gym Building. (or memorize map above – much easier!)
