This is unfortunate outcome and doesn't well for our future. It only proves to me that voters in the district did no further research than to look at the party affiliation on the ballot. Jen Falk received 40% of the vote in the heavily republican leaning district where Murphy has previously run unopposed. Why in the world would voters want a bloated administrive budget, higher student to teacher ratios, overcrowded schools, low graduation rates, overpaid superintendents, and obfuscatory school board and mystery funds being funneled to other county organizations. I also find it interesting the voters approved the charter school amendment that Murphy was against.
