Five Millburn School Board Candidates Explain Qualifications
Contenders discuss interest in vacant seat on Millburn Board of Education at Monday board meeting.
Five of the seven candidates vying for the seat left vacant after Millburn Board of Education member Jean Pasternak resigned at the Feb. 11 meeting made presentations to the school board and residents at Monday night's meeting.
The board gave the candidates the opportunity to discuss their qualifications and interests at the meeting and also to answer two questions — why they are interested in serving on the board and what are their qualifications.
Each of the candidates displayed different career experiences, but all said they wanted to give back to the Millburn School District and try to make it better.

The board will appoint a resident to fill the open seat at the April 11 meeting, school board president Jeffery Waters explained.
The seat has been empty since Pasternak resigned to focus on family matters.
