Kevin McEvoy’s appointment to mayor leaves vacancy on the township school board
EAST BRUNSWICK – The appointment of Kevin McEvoy as mayor Monday night has left a vacancy on the township school board.
McEvoy resigned from the school board Monday morning, Superintendent of Schools Victor Valeski said.
“We’ll miss him,” Valeski said. “He’s walked that line of making sure as a constituent, as a public servant, that he met the needs of both the schools and the community and found a balance.”
McEvoy was sworn in as mayor by Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin, D-18th District.
He replaces David Stahl, who was sworn in as a municipal judge last month. Stahl was appointed to serve a three-year term in Woodbridge through Dec. 31, 2018.

Details of the event are:
The East Brunswick Public Library Foundation invites the community to its 1st Annual Roots & Wings Celebration, on Thursday, May 28, 2015, with doors opening at 6:45 p.m., and program at 7:00 p.m., featuring author and illustrator Brian Selznick.
Selznick, an East Brunswick native, is the award-winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which was adapted into the 2011 Oscar-winning film Hugo.
The East Brunswick Public Library Foundation strives to create an environment in which children, teens, and adults can root themselves in our society, our culture, and our town. By supporting the growth of Library services and activities, the Library Foundation strengthens the roots of the Library. Strong roots allows the library to give wings to our residents’ ideas, dreams, and lifelong learning. The Library’s ability to provide the “roots” of learning, the roots of exploration and the roots of personal enrichment then empowers our residents to fly through their world and take “wing” on their dreams. The name of this event celebrates this notion.
Tickets cost $100 for adults, and $40 for students in grades 10-12, and can be purchased at the circulation desk in the Library at 2 Jean Walling Civic Center. The evening includes a presentation by Brian Selznick, silent auction, book signing, and an elegant dessert buffet. All proceeds will benefit the East Brunswick Public Library Foundation.
Contact Andrea Alexander, Development Director, at 732-390-6762 for more information.
They scared us by holding Jax until last of the three that were safe this week, but once again Jax comes through and stays alive!! Jax sang great but needs your votes to keep going. The homecoming segment was nice, but it was sad that they failed to show the great singing done by the East Brunswick Choir. Luckily there are lots of pictures and articles written about Jax’s visit.
