PERTH AMBOY – At the 3/11/15 Board of Education Meeting, Board President Sam Lebreault stated, “We have spent several months in search for a new Superintendent. We now invoke the Doctrine of Necessity. The Perth Amboy Board of Education finds it necessary to appoint a new Superintendent of Schools. The following have a relative employed by the Board of Education: Anthony Bermudez has a sister employed, Milady Tejada has a brother employed, Israel Varela has a wife employed, Sam Lebreault has a sister-in-law employed, Obi Gonzalez has a sister-in-law employed and Jose Rodriguez has a niece employed. By this resolution for the past 30 days compliance made with the School Ethics Committee: David A. Roman will be hired from 7/1/15 until 1/1/19.”

Both Milady Tejada and Anthony Bermudez stated that even though they were not involved in the selection process they trusted the judgment of those who were involved.

The vote to hire Roman was unanimous: 9 – 0.

Roman offered some remarks, “I spoke with my wife and took a leap of faith. I can recall from the youth days of my life and recalled many obstacles. Public education is the equalizer. This is a community for someone to contribute – not to lead and take over, but to contribute. We’re dream makers. I look forward to achieve this. Please join me to let the children know what the world has to offer them and what they have to offer the world. I thank the Board of Education for this opportunity.”

Roman’s hiring must still be approved by the County and the State.
