Edward Card Announces Write-In Candidacy For Second Wallkill Valley BOE Seat For Hardyston
Monday, October 22, 2012 • 6:15pm
Edward Card, a 20-year resident of North Church Estates in Hardyston, announced his candidacy as a write-in candidate for Wallkill Valley High School Board of Education.
“My reasons for running for a seat on the Board of Education are simple,” stated Card.
“First and foremost I believe that our taxpayers, our children, and our township should be represented within the high school district properly. Secondly, I feel that our high school staff should be working collaboratively with our middle schools to assure that a seamless transition of curriculum, activities, and technology exist between institutions to ease the transitional anxiety of our eighth grade students. Lastly, I believe that we need to enhance our educational technology within the high school: this will augment our students’ learning and better prepare our young adults for college, technical school, or the work force.”
Card is married to Debbie DeBree-Card and they have four children who currently attend Seton Hall University, Wallkill Valley High School, and Hardyston Middle School. Card’s education includes an undergraduate degree and master’s degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University and an Ed.S. from Seton Hall University where he is currently pursuing a Doctoral Degree (Ed.D.). His history of public service within the government has also led him to become a Certified Public Manager and a Certified Chief Law Enforcement Executive.
Card has served as the Chief of Police in the Borough of Butler for the past seven years and he has been a police officer for twenty-eight years. In addition, Card is the owner and president of JERA Services LLC, a small computer consulting firm specializing in small business and governmental accounts.
In the upcoming general election there is only one candidate appearing on the ballot for two open seats to represent Hardyston on the Wallkill Valley Regional Board of Education. Card will be waging a campaign to remind Hardyston residents to vote for William Castiglione and then to write-in his name on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6.
“If elected, I look forward to serving with Bill and the rest of the current board members,” Card stated. “I have served on several educational committees in Morris and Sussex counties over the years, primarily as the chairperson of their respective technology committees; these committees plan, implement, and maintain the technology infrastructure of the schools,” said Card.
“I believe that my experiences will bring a unique viewpoint to the Wallkill Valley Regional School Board of Education and will thoroughly benefit our children.”
