LODI, N.J. -- A winning Lodi Board of Education candidate won't be able to take office because a criminal conviction showed up on his background check, according to northjersey.com.

A vacancy is now listed on the Lodi Board of Education's website and anyone interested in applying must submit information by Friday, according to northjersey.com.
