Proposal To Move December 11 School Board Meeting Fails

Nancy LaCorte

Board of Education member Nancy LaCorte was opposed to an idea to move the December board meeting so members could attend a Chamber of Commerce event.


A proposal by the Board of Education’s vice president to move the December meeting so board members could attend a Chamber of Commerce event received no support at the Nov. 13 meeting.

Board vice president Eva Nagy made the proposal, she said, because the chamber has been very supportive of the school district and she thought the district should respond in kind.

“We are in a community, we work with each other,” she said.

Nagy wanted the board to move the Dec. 11 meeting to later in the month so members could attend the chamber’s annual holiday event at the State Theatre in New Brunswick. The event features a concert by The Four Tops and The Temptations.

Board member Nancy LaCorte, while acknowledging how active the chamber is in the township, said she saw no reason why the board meeting should be moved to a new date.

LaCorte said board members regularly have to miss school-related events to attend meetings.

“I just think it’s funny that we’re thinking of changing a board meeting to go see a concert that has nothing to do with our students,” she said.

Board member Ed Potosnak agreed with LaCorte.

“I don’t feel a compelling reason whatsoever to move the meeting,” he said. “I think it sets a bad precedent.”

“I just threw it out there for the board to decide,” Nagy said. “We were asked.”

Nagy them asked for a motion to be made to move the meeting, but none was forthcoming and the proposal died.
