The BTDC Beat

Our Time Is NOW
Ana McCarthy & Lily Wong are ready to make history, right here, right now in Bernards Township. If elected, it would be the first time in history that two Democrats are given the nod to serve. In this divisive political climate and increasingly divided community, the BTDC is working at every level imaginable – working to break through an all-Republican gridlock that has gripped our district and continues to stymie progress and change. Looking ahead to next month’s election and borrowing from the title of Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams’ recent book, our time is NOW.

Self-Eval Looming
September 18th’s Board of Education meeting featured an informal work session, designed for board self-evaluation and goal setting, followed by a traditional meeting. Both assemblies were open to the public. However, because the group did not receive the materials necessary to engage in the self-evaluation piece until earlier that same morning, they plan to conduct the exercise at a later date, likely during the next public board forum.
