In a letter to the editor, recent West New York Board of Education candidate John Smith congratulates the three winners from the November 8 election.
I would like to congratulate all the B.O.E. candidates who ran for a seat on the board, especially the winners for the 3-year terms, Ron Scheurle, David Morel, and Adam Parkinson.
It was my first time to run and ever experience it. I also want to thank the residents of WEST NEW YORK that voted for me. I feel proud of myself on the amount of votes that I received from everyone.
I will continue to go to the meetings and say what’s on my mind if needed. Plus. I will continue to support the students and teachers all the way. Also I want to thank my wife, Cheryl Smith, my 3 boys Brian, Kevin and Thomas, my mother-in-law Jean Gordon, also my friends in WEST NEW YORK for helping me out and supporting me.
My Mom and Dad always said to me if you fall off your horse get back on it and try harder. But with me I don’t get back on a horse I get back on a bull with horns and try harder.
So everyone asks me will I run again? You never know. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
West New York resident
