BRICK, NJ — When voters go to the polls Nov. 3, they will be asked to choose two people to serve on the Brick Township Board of Education.
There are five people seeking those two seats, which are volunteer, unpaid three-year terms on the board.
Patch asked each candidate to answer questions to give voters information about who they are and their stances on various issues. We are printing their responses in full, unedited except for spelling or punctuation.
Here are the answers from Jessica Clayton, who is seeking re-election and running solo under the slogan Fighting For Funding.
