Branchburg Board Of Education

Vote November 6 for Lisa Martinelli

I am running for the Board of Education...


Let me introduce myself to you and tell you why I would like for you to vote for me on November 6th for the Branchburg Board of Education. My name is Lisa "Lysa" Martinelli and my 27 years working in higher education, my 19 years as a mother and my many years involved in school and community activities has prepared me for taking on this position.

Why should you vote for me? I have such a strong desire to serve the community as a Board of Education member and the time is now right for me to serve. I will work to:

  • ensure that the curriculum teaches to the full education of the students
  • be part of the decision making process to ensure decisions are made with the best interests of all Branchburg students in mind
  • ensure that programs are geared to preparing students for success during their entire academic career
  • increase involvement of residents in educational committees/activities
  • develop a program where residents can be more involved in the decisions that are made by the Somerville Board of Education that impact the High School students from Branchburg


I like many other residents want our students to receive a top quality and well-rounded education while being mindful of the cost of education and the impact to taxpayers.

New polling locations: District 1 & 3 at BCMS and District 4 & 7 at Stony Brook have been moved to the Municipal Annex on Kenbury Road.

I look forward to hearing from you - contact me at:
