Lakewood Board of Education members Ada Gonzalez, Moshe Raitzik, and Eliyahu Greenwald who are seeking reelection to additional three-year terms, are all facing challenges.

Avrohom Schubert, Eli Eisenbach, and Yoni Morgenstern are running together under the slogan "Fixing the Formula."

Rabbi Yehuda Shain is running under the slogan "Accountability and Transparency."

The incumbents did not file a slogan.

School board members do not receive a salary to serve.

R' Aron Lang, a veteran teacher who has selflessly expended many efforts on behalf of funding for bussing for all of Lakewood's students - and whose efforts have, oddly, been rebuffed by the current Board of Education - had called for new candidates to run for the positions.

"The BOE is supposed to oversee those whom they pay. In Lakewood, someone they pay oversees the BOE," stated R' Lang.

In Manchester Township, a total of 9 candidates have filed to fill 3 seats on the Board.

Laura Wingler (an incumbent), Timothy Poss, and Gloria E. Adkinson are running under the slogan "Putting Kids First."

Samuel M. Carollo is running under the slogan "Students First - Always!"

Gina Georgiano (an incumbent) and Bozena Czekalski are running under the slogan "Better For Manchester."
