PARSIPPANY, NJ—In less than a month, one of the most heated elections in our history will take place. Parsippany’s School Board race features six candidates vying for three, three-year terms. Get to know Matt DeVitto, one of the candidates:
Bio: I am a life-long New Jersey resident & have been a resident of Parsippany in the Lake Intervale section since December of 2014. One of the reasons we moved to Parsippany was because we enjoyed living here previously in Lake Hiawatha and in addition, the good ratings of the township’s public schools.
I have been a network engineer for 21 years with FIS Global, a financial services company. I feel today’s children need a good grasp of today’s modern technology to further many of today’s academic goals.
I am active in intramural sports in town coaching with the Parsippany Soccer Club and Par-Troy West Little League baseball. I do see the value of extracurricular activities to supplement our children’s academic education.
I hope you will vote 1-2-3 for BOE: DeVitto, Orme and Berrios for Parsippany Board of Ed!

During my term for the past three years I have attended practically all official board meetings and I have
