East Windsor residents reminded about school board filing deadline

East Windsor Township residents have 10 days left to file a nominating petition to seek a seat on the East Windsor Regional School District Board of Education.

The deadline to file is July 29 at 4 p.m.

Nominating petitions signed by 10 registered voters must be turned in to the Mercer County Clerk’s Office in Trenton by that date. The school board election is Nov. 5.

The terms of Christine Harrington, Nicole LaRusso and Ram Ramachandran are expiring. They represent East Windsor Township on the nine-member school board. Seven seats are set aside for East Windsor Township representatives and two are for Hightstown Borough residents.

The term is for three years.

Ramachandran said he is going to seek re-election to the school board, but Harrington said she would not be seeking another term.

Harrington has recently accepted a new position at New Jersey City University. She will be an associate professor and coordinator of a new doctoral program in community college leadership.

Harrington said she wants to focus on her new position, which will enable her to help to develop aspiring leaders in the field of community colleges.

LaRusso, the third incumbent school board member, could not be reached for comment.
