School Board Member Corey Teague will not pursue a Paterson First Ward Council seat, as he originally planned.
“I found out that Manny Martinez picked up petitions and so I’ve decided to back him for now and possibly run for an at-large seat sometime in the future,” said Teague. “It seems like a better move for me. I’ll do another term on the board and then gear myself up for the council. The reality is that I don’t really have the organization to pull it off right now. The school board is city-wide. I’m yet working but my day is coming.”
