My name is Jared Millbrandt and I am running for Orange BOE. My wife, Rosanna, and I have lived in Orange for three years and have two young children who will be heading to school in the next few years. I received my BA in History from Nazareth College in Rochester, NY in 2006. I attended Western New England College School of Law, received my Juris Doctor in May 2010, and was admitted to practice law that same year. I am a criminal defense attorney and have worked for the Public Defender’s Office in Bridgeport for the past 9 years. Here in Orange, we are lucky that our children receive an education that rivals the best school systems in Connecticut. However, opportunities to enhance and improve our existing system should be explored and researched; not simply dismissed without analysis. It is my goal to ensure that all children in our community continue to receive a valuable education and are provided with every tool necessary to ensure their success. If you share in this vision, I, along with all of the other members of the Democratic Team, ask for your vote on November 5.
