Campaign themes

In response to a survey conducted by The Hub Independent, Aveta provided the following themes for his 2013 campaign:[4]

During my tenure as chairman of the finance committee, tax increases with respect to the Board of Education budget were 1.3 percent, .98 percent and 1 percent, respectively, for the past three years. Even with these modest property tax increases, the board was able to fund new capital projects. The board has also successfully settled the contracts of all major bargaining units over the past three years. We collaborated on the construction of two state-of-the-art athletic facilities, and a third facility is scheduled for construction. I would continue moving forward with a particular emphasis on increasing technology, improving test scores and continuing to improve district facilities.

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.[7]
