There are two Board of Education seats up for election this November 5 and four candidates vying for those seats: incumbents Jim Day and Glenn Elliott, and challengers Sara Drappi and Lynn Halsey.

As we have done with the BOE and Town Council race in recent years, MyVeronaNJ.com has questions for these candidates. So every Friday until October 25, we will send them a question that they must respond to by noon on the following Tuesday. The candidates’ responses are listed in the order in which they were received, and MyVeronaNJ.com did not edit the answers in any way, whether for grammar, spelling or length.

Think of this question series as a job interview. When anyone interviews for a job now, they are asked to talk about their understanding of the position at hand and what their applicable skills are. They are asked to talk about the general knowledge required to excel in the position, their approach to leadership and teamwork–and more. Interviewers are trying to see how well the candidate understands the responsibilities that they are looking to take on, and how well prepared they are to do so. We’ll be tackling different aspects of this interview process every week in the run-up to the election, beginning with this question:

QUESTION 1: When you talk to prospective voters about what the Board of Education can–and cannot do–what do you tell them?
