Candidate Bio: Christopher Petter (R) Board of Education

Christopher Petter (R) Board of Education
I was born and raised in Vernon, NJ, and adopted Middletown as my home six years ago. My wife, Kelly, and I loved living in Middletown so much that we decided to commit our future to the town and bought a home 2 years ago. We currently live with our two dogs, Ecco (a Husky) and Rascal (a Cavalier King Charles that lives up to his name). I graduated from Marywood University in 2006 with a degree in History/Political Science. I then attended law school at Quinnipiac University and graduated, with honors, from the criminal law and advocacy concentration. I joined the firm of McHugh, Chapman and Vargas located in Middletown, and mostly practice in the local Court. I also currently sit on the Board of Directors of two local non-profit organizations.

 I am running for the Middletown Board of Education, because I am dedicated to making our school system the best that it can be. To do that, I plan on focusing on the following areas if I am elected: Budget Transparency: As tax payers, we deserve to know where our money is going and why it is going there. Fiscal Responsibility: Both Keigwin and Woodrow Wilson are aging and either need renovations or need to be razed. 

We need to make sure this decision is made in a way that creates a better learning environment for the students as well as not becoming a financial drain on the town. Protect our Students: Bullying is a problem located in every school across the nation, and I have had to help clients bullied in the Middletown school system. We need to make sure that our students are going to school in a safe environment on a daily basis.
