I was very pleased to read about Freeholder Joe Vicari’s efforts to bring more specialized training to Ocean County.

Joe Vicari’s plan to work with local businesses to ensure that the county’s vocational schools provide the kind of training business owners are looking for in their new employees is an outstanding example of his leadership. I understand that Joe Vicari is a lifelong educator and it shows. These kind of creative ideas will help our students complete-and-succeed in a very competitive job market and economy.

Browsing through the Vocational-Technical Schools website, I was amazed by the variety of programs offered. I expected to see plumbing and auto repair, but was surprised by subjects ranging from marine sciences to culinary arts with training at an actual working gourmet restaurant.

Programs like this prove Joe Vicari is serious about education. His efforts deserve our support. Please join with me in re-electing Freeholder Joe Vicari on November 7.
