CAPTION: Larry O'Connell and Thomas Gambino
O'Connell, Gambino are in the race for 2 board seats
Matawan-Aberdeen Board of Education incumbent Larry O'Connell and newcomer Dr. Thomas Gambino are featured in this week's edition of The Courier, in a story by myself. Both men are running in a field of five candidates competing for two seats on the board that are open this year.
Mr. O'Connell is seeking his third term on the body. He is currently the chairman of the Programs Committee for the board and sits on several other committees. He is employed by IBM, in Piscataway. Mr. O'Connell holds two Master's degrees.
Dr. Gambino is running on a platform of improving research-based decision-making by the board. He believes better decisions can be made by integrating better fact-based analysis into the process. He holds a Doctorate as well as a Master's.
