Tuesday was the deadline for candidates to register to run for boards of education in New Jersey. In Brick, five candidates – three of whom are incumbents – will seek three seats on the voting body.
Incumbents Stephanie Wohlrab, Victoria Pakala and Nicole Siebert will seek re-election while former board member Walter Campbell is mounting a challenge. Frances DiBenedictis, a newcomer, is also running for a seat.
School board elections in New Jersey are technically nonpartisan, however it is common for political parties to provide support to their favored candidates. The general election will be held Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2021.
