Another Warren Township resident, Livio (Mike) Mancino said on Monday he also is seeking to be elected to one of three seats on the township's K-8 school board on Tuesday. To be elected, he would need to receive a sufficient number of write in votes to gain more votes than the one candidate listed on the ballot, and two other write-in candidates.
Mancino, a five-year resident of Warren said he hopes to bring a wide range of experience and leadership skills to the Warren Township Board of Education.
Including Mancino, four candidates now are seeking election to the three, three-year seats on the school board.
"I am committed to a rigorous curriculum that promotes a high level of student achievement, while understanding the need to be fiscally responsible to the tax payers of Warren Township," Mancino said.
Mancino said he has worked in public education for 20 years, and now is a teacher at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark. He added he was president and CEO of an insurance and tax business.
Mancino said he has volunteered in many capacities within the Warren community for youth sports, civic, and religious organizations. He said he has coached several youth sports in town.
"My wife, Christina, and I chose to raise our three children in Warren because of the highly rated school systems," Mancino said. "As a board member my hope is to continue our high educational standards, while being responsive, not only to the tax payers of our community, but most importantly to the parents and students."
He said he is asking for write-in votes for Livio M. Mancino on line 39.
