Reports: Toms River School Board Member Could be Facing Ethics Charges


TOMS RIVER-The public battle between Democrats and Republicans on the Toms River School Board has cooled down in recent months as both sides work together to convince the public to pass an upcoming $100,000,000 referendum later this year, but a new storm could be brewing.

But behind the scenes, school board Democrats have reportedly put Republican Christopher Raimann on notice.  Raimann was summoned to the law offices of Stephan Leone, attorney for the district.

Multiple sources close to the Toms River School Board have confirmed the meeting and said the meeting was in regards to possible ethics charges being levied against Raimann by school board Democrats.

The nature of the ethics charges were not released.

“I can neither confirm nor deny. Any such matters would be confidential,” said school board attorney Stephan Leone.

Raimann was contacted regarding these allegations and has yet to respond.  This story will be updated as soon as more information is made available.
