Vincent Brand, Chris Aveta and Michael Mascone swept out the incumbents in the Middletown Board of Education election, according to unofficial results posted on the Monmouth County web site.
The board budget was soundly defeated, 58% no to 42% yes. 12,657 people voted on the budget question in the 45 or 46 districts reporting as of this posting.
My completely unscientific perusal of the budget questions throughout the county indicate that the vast majority of budgets went down. Tinton Falls being one notable exception. Well done Mr. Laffey.
