Campaign themes


Truszkowski described his 2013 campaign themes in an interview with Tri-City News:[3]

I believe our district needs to work much more closely with colleges and universities to better prepare our students, create a more efficient and up-todate curriculum for all of our students and become more accessible to our community to receive feedback. I hope to elevate the Freehold Regional High School District to a new level of excellence that will serve as a model for other schools and districts.

What was at stake?

Incumbent Ronald Lawson did not file for re-election to the Howell Township seat in 2013. Truszkowski and Amy M. Fankhauser vied for Lawson's seat in the only competitive race in the district.[1]

Racial Demographics, 2010[4]
Race Monmouth County (%) New Jersey (%)
White 85.1 73.8
Black or African American 7.7 14.7
American Indian and Alaska Native 0.3 0.6
Asian 5.3 9
Two or More Races 1.6 1.9
Hispanic or Latino 10 18.5

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.[5]
