PERTH AMBOY – Communication #3 Jessika Kleen, Esq. of the Machado Law Group advising that the Perth Amboy Board of Education adopted a resolution on January 12, 2016, moving the elections from November to the third Tuesday in April. (1/19/16)

Councilman Fernando Irizarry was very concerned about this communication. He wanted to know what was the rationale for the BOE changing the date. “Will it cost the City some money?”

He asked the Law Director to contact the Board of Education Lawyer for more information.

Law Director Arlene Quinones Perez said, “The Council can add your input, but I will contact the Board of Education Attorney per your request.”

In October 2010, the City Council voted to shift the City’s non-partisan elections from May to November with the first Balloting held in conjunction with the General Election in November 2012. As a result of this, Mayor Diaz along with her running mates from 2008: Ken Balut and Fernando Gonzalez had their terms extended by 6 months. The Board of Education also moved their elections to November effective in 2012. The Board Members who term were to expire in April 2012 were also had their terms extended as well.
