Millicker reported no contributions or expenditures to the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission.
Millicker did not receive any official endorsements for her campaign.
In response to a survey conducted by The Hub Independent, Millicker argued that the following was the most significant issue confronting the school district:
The main issue facing Middletown schools is education equity in meeting the needs of the entire school population, especially on the elementary-school level. In the 2013 New Jersey Department of Education School Performance Report, many elementary schools within the district were found to be lagging in some aspect, including academic performance. A focus needs to be set on academic curriculum and social development on all levels for all students. Programming partnerships with community and municipal councils, as well as an academic evaluation of current programs, will help tackle many of the issues facing Middletown schools.
What was at stake?
There were three seats on the school board up for election on November 5, 2013. Incumbents Christopher J. Aveta, Vincent S. Brand and John Bennett Jr. all filed for re-election to keep their seats and competed with seven newcomers in the at-large race. Challengers Michael A. Donlon, Richard G. Campbell and Michael Craig ran unsuccessfully in 2012 for seats on the Middletown Township school board.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one- or two-tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
