POINT PLEASANT — Two newcomers were sworn in as members of the Point Pleasant Board of Education during its annual reorganization meeting held on Jan. 2.
Out of the six candidates that were vying for the two available three-year terms on the board, Stephen Henry [3,428 votes] and Michael Sullivan [3,088 votes] came out on top, successfully securing their new terms against challengers John LoVerde, William Munn, William J. Dikun and Heather Kertman in the November general election.
Both Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Henry, along with their respective families, were present at the meeting. Following their oaths of office, the two men assumed their seats on the Board of Education.
