Three candidates for the Livingston Board of Education will meet tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 19 for a debate presented by the Livingston League of Women Voters. The forum will be in the Livingston High School chorus room beginning at 8 p.m.
Candidates -- Pam Chirls, David Jasin, and Soumitra Rathod -- are running for two open seats on the local school board.
Livingston voters will vote for the school board candidates for the first time in the general election on November 6. The election time was moved as a result of a new state law signed last January that gave districts the option to move their elections from April to November.
Tonight’s moderator will be Dawn Clarke, a League member from Union County and a state board member of the New Jersey League of Women Voters.
The evening will conclude with refreshments and opportunity to talk individually with the candidates. Biographical material from each candidate will be available.
This is a free public meeting and residents are encouraged to attend.
