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.

Jax at East Brunswick Parade

American Idol contestant Jax returned to her hometown of East Brunswick, NJ and was welcomed by thousands. The town put on a parade and concert to celebrate her success at making it to the final 4 on American Idol. The event came off very nicely. The crowd really started to grow about 4:30 and it was great to see all the kids excitedly waiting for Jax with their homemade signs. The East Brunswick High School choir marched in the parade and sang to Jax. When Jax finally came out to sing, she made her way through the crowd to get to the stage and then the East Brunswick Choir sang to her – followed by a group hug. Jax then sang several songs which really sounded great. It was all very nice.

Great Jax Coverage – MyCentralJersey.com

Cheryl Makin, @CherylMakin has provided additional coverage on mycentraljersey.com including information about the parade that will be held for Jax this Friday here in East Brunswick.

The following is a small selection from this article: “Home sweet homecoming for ‘American Idol’ Jax”

EAST BRUNSWICK – There are four things that Jax misses the most about being so far away from home. In Los Angeles for more than two months, the 18-year-old “American Idol” contestant said, without hesitation, what she misses most is her 16-year-old brother Matthew, her puppy Jeter, the weather and Dunkin’ Donuts.

The singer-songwriter who is in the Top 5 on “American Idol” will tour with other contestants this summer.

On Friday, Jax, who turns 19 on Tuesday, and an “American Idol” entourage will visit her hometown to film a piece to be shown May 6, the night the Top 3 are crowned. Should Jax be in the Top 3, her homecoming adventure will be featured on that episode.

Of course the Home News is not the only folks supporting Jax!
