This is awesome.
A New Jersey high school graduate who had his senior year disrupted by “awful” COVID-19 shutdowns defeated an incumbent candidate in his local school board race this week.
What are the details?
Nicholas Seppy, a 19-year-old graduate of Egg Harbor Township High School, trounced his opponent, sitting board member Terre Alabarda, by about 18 percentage points in New Jersey’s election on Tuesday.
Seppy reportedly garnered 59% support with 4,042 votes while Alabarda earned just 41% with 2,830 votes, according to Atlantic County’s election results webpage.
In conversation with the College Fix, Seppy slammed the shutdowns as “awful” and said that he decided to run for a seat on the school board “out of a desire to serve in [his] community” and to “give parents a voice in the district.”
