At the NJSBA Board of Directors meeting on Jan. 18, the Association marked the departure of Vice President for Legislation and Resolutions Brandon J. Pugh.

A member of the Moorestown Board of Education since 2013, Pugh opted not to run for reelection in November.

Pugh recently graduated from law school and has been admitted to the bar. Beginning a career in law was a factor in his decision not to seek reelection to his local board.

He had served as president and vice president of the Moorestown school board. He is also a former president of the Burlington County School Boards Association and previously served on the NJSBA Board of Directors. Pugh was elected vice president for legislation/resolutions in 2017. He served on NJSBA’s 2014 and 2018 school security task forces and ad hoc committees on governance and bylaws revisions.

NJSBA bylaws require that Association vice presidents be current members of their boards of education. The position of vice president for legislation and resolutions will be filled through the election of officers at the May 2019 Delegate Assembly. Until then, President Dan Sinclair will assign other officers to fulfill the responsibilities of vice president for legislation and resolutions.
