Two Candidates will Spar for Oradell Seat on Regional Board of Ed

Majority of races for Board of Education this November are uncontested

With the move to November for the tri-district Board of Education elections, only Roger Tashjian's Oradell seat on the Regional Board will be contested this fall. Tashjian who is not seeking reelection will instead watch from the sidelines as Michael Gardner and Patrick Gallagher battle for the open three-year term.

Incumbents from River Edge Joe Manzelli and Claudia O'Neill will face no competition to return to the Regional Board.

Also running unopposed this year are candidates for the River Edge and Oradell boards as well. Incumbents Katherine Norian and Christine Robertson are set to resume their seats come January while Andrew Oddo will replace Louis Ferrante.

In River Edge, Shawn Kucharski will not seek reelection and his seat would go to Gyuchang Sim. Both Colin Busteed and Wendy Walker, incumbents, will go unchallenged.
