Meet the Board of Education (BOE) Candidates
Get to Know the Candidates for Moorestown’s Board of Education! Moorestown Home & School will be hosting a Board of Education (BOE) Candidate Forum on Monday, October 23rd from 7pm - 8:30pm in the auditorium of William Allen Middle School (WAMS).
The Moorestown Braver Angels Alliance will be moderating the event. The Candidate Forum provides voters with an opportunity to get to know each of the candidates so they can make informed decisions on Election Day.
If you have any questions about the forum, please contact email@example.com. The BOE election is non-partisan, but to avoid any perception of party favoritism, the volunteers who read and prioritize the questions will be made up of an equal number of Democrats and Republicans.
We hope you can attend! If you cannot, the event will be live-streamed and recorded to view at a later date.
The WAMS 7th and 8th Grade Halloween Dance is quickly approaching and we still need your help to make it a success. There will be a DJ, decorations, costume contests, photo booth, prizes and more!
