The three incumbent candidates for the Midland Park Board of Education attended the PTAs candidates night on Thursday, but challenger John Meeks did not. 

Incumbents James Canellas, Maryalice Thomas and Peter Triolo, who are running as a slate, answered questions from an independent moderator from the Bergen County PTA  regarding plans for fixing the facilities, the strengths and weaknesses of the district and the learning curve involved with being a board member. 

According to officials, Meeks declined the invitation stating simply, "Thank you for inviting me to your candidates night. I will not be attending." No further reason was given.
