Former Brick Township Board of Education president Kim V. Terebush has withdrawn from this year's school board race.
Coupled with the decision of board member Leonard Cuppari not to seek re-election, the withdrawl marks the end of an alignment of board members that took a loss in last year's election cycle.
Terebush did not return a call from Brick Patch seeking comment on her reasoning for withdrawing from the race. She withdrew Sept. 14, records show.
With the departure of Terebush, this year's race will be divided between two defined tickets and several other candidates.
The ticket of Walter F. Campbell, Susan Suter, Karyn Cusanelli and Lois Turner are running under the "Right Direction for Brick" banner.
Frank Pannucci, Jr., Michael R. Conti, Richard Lau and Brenda Calderone are running as a ticket as well.
Victor Fanelli, David J. Fischer and John Barton are individually running for seats on the board.
Three full, three year terms are up for grabs, as well as one, one year unexpired term.
The school board election will be held Nov. 6, the same day as the general election.
