Hazlet Board of Education Swears in Two Incumbents, One New Member
The board of education held their annual reorganization meeting Monday, Jan. 7 at Raritan High School.
Two familiar faces and one new member were sworn into the Hazlet Township Board of Education during the reorganization meeting at Raritan High School Monday night.
Frances McGrath, Stephen Willig and Natale Iannello stood side by side as they simultaneously took the oath of office.
This marks the beginning of a fourth term for McGrath, the beginning of a third term for Willig and the beginning of a first term for Iannello.
When asked about his long tenure on the board, McGrath noted that he enjoys working to improve the district.
"It's nice when you can help out and try to see that the schools are going in the right direction," he said.
Willig likes watching new ideas grow into successful initiatives while keeping the taxpayers in mind.
"Seeing the results of the programs in place is probably the most satisfying part," he said. "We've really done a lot and we've really focused on doing what's best for the children and the taxpayers of Hazlet."
Iannello is looking forward to getting his feet wet as a board member and doing what he can to improve the district.
"I want to help the kids. I have two children still in the district," he said.
Each member was elected for a three-year term ending on Dec. 31, 2015.
