The first full week of 2014 is a busy one, as two school boards will be swearing in new and incumbent members this week and naming presidents and vice presidents. Here’s a breakdown of the meeting schedule in the coming days.
On Monday, Jan. 6, the West Morris Regional school board will hold its reorganization meeting prior to its regular meeting. Four members will be sworn in at the meeting, including new Mendham representative Brian Cavanaugh and new Chester Township representative Gary Lakritz.
Washington Township incumbents Tom Richar and Lisa Woodring will also take their respective oaths of office. The board will vote on a new president and vice president as well. The 2013 president, James Johnston, is no longer on the board. Joe Galayda served as vice president during that same time and remains on the board.
The Washington Township School district board of education will hold its reorganization meeting Tuesday night and open to the public at 7:30 p.m.
President and vice president Cathy Compoli and Kathy Koop will be sworn into their new three-year terms as well as Kevin Daly. The board will vote on members to take the position of president and vice president for 2014.
Cap off the week by helping support a local team and having some great breakfast. The West Morris Central girls basketball team will host a pancake breakfast at Applebee’s in Hackettstown at 8 a.m.
Have a great week, Washington Township!
