Mr. Frank Velez III


Frank Velez has been a proud resident of Belleville for over 17 Years, having grown up in the Cherry Blossom Capital of America, and graduating from Belleville Public Schools in 2019. Frank is currently a sophomore at Fordham University in New York City, and is now serving in his first term as Board Trustee on the Belleville Board of Education.

Frank has been involved in local affairs as early as when he was seven years old, believing that only with real political change can we truly better the world around us. 

Motivated by a strong desire to represent families with special needs like his own, as well as the students of the district that had never felt they had youth representation on the Board, Frank ran for the Belleville Board of Education in the 2020 General Election.

Soon after he won, he pledged to be a trustee who will hear everyone out—regardless of whether or not he received their vote in the election. 

Frank Velez will work everyday with fellow board members and the superintendent to continue to bring about the greatest opportunities and educational progress for the children, families, and teachers of the Belleville Public Schools District for as long as he holds office as a Belleville Board Trustee.
