Morris County First

Take back our schools one local Board of Education at a time!

About Us

Morris County First is a team dedicated to making schools in our communities better. Improving education starts at the top, and by recruiting quality Board of Education members, we can ensure that schools follow a conservative direction and reflect the values of our communities.

Too many times, we have seen activist Board of Education members with liberal-leaning political agendas use public education as a tool for political gain.

Morris County First is here to work with you, and to take back our schools one local Board of Education at a time.

WHAT IS MY FIRST STEP?

>>The deadline for filing a Board of Education election petition is July 26, 2021. In order to appear on the ballot you must complete a petition, which can be downloaded here: (Individual / Joint)

>>The New Jersey School Boards Association provides a candidate toolkit which can tell you more about the Board of Education election process and some of the guidelines that govern school boards in New Jersey. That information can be found here.

>>Candidates for the Board of Education can choose to run as a ticket or individually. We recommend making this choice based largely on the conditions in your local district.

I'M A CANDIDATE, NOW WHAT?

>> Although elections for Board of Education are non-partisan, nearly 100% of elections for Board of Education positions are held in November along with the general election. Aside from your position as a candidate on education related items, most voters will want to know your political ideology as well.

>> From a tactical perspective, it may be beneficial to align yourself with local partisan groups, elected officials or candidates. Each community is different, so it's important to identify a plan for victory early on in the process.
