New Year, New Members for Oceanport BOE
The school board reorganized on Thursday night and swore in three (almost) new members and an incumbent.
There was a lot of housekeeping to tend to at Thursday's Oceanport Board of Education meeting. There were appointments to be made, resolutions to be passed and caps to be considered.
There was also the small matter of swearing in four members to the board who garnered the most votes during November's elections.
New members Jay Coffey and Mike Murphy, along with returning member Tom Welsh, took the oath of office to serve three-year terms on the board of education. Seven candidates had competed for the seats in November.
Incumbent Spencer Carpenter, who ran unopposed, was sworn in to serve the remaining one year of a seat on the board.
