Hazlet School Board Needs A New Member

Newly elected Glenn Mason has declined his three-year seat

Hazlet resident Glenn Mason, who recently won a three-year seat in the school board election, has turned down the position because he has just been hired by the school district as a part-time security officer. 

"He got the position after he put in his papers to run, and he's learned he can't do both," said School Board President Stephen Willig. 

The school board is accepting letters and resumes of interest through December 16 and will appoint someone to fill one year of the three-year term. An election will be held in 2014 for the term's remaining two years. 

For more information on how to apply for the position, see this page on the district website. 

Willig said the school board will be focused in 2014 on controlling the budget, improving test scores, and focusing on science, technology, engineering and math initiatives. "We're looking for a way to set Raritan apart from other high schools," Willig said. "We are looking into getting our high school to be a model for the state, in terms of science curriculum." 

Glenn, a former police officer and school board member, was elected to the 9-member board a for three-year term along with incumbents Lauri O'Leary and Carol Gaffney. Thomas Herman won the one-year unexpired term vacated by Sameer Doshi.

Is there an issue with serving on this board? 2 leave in 12 months?
