7 Candidates File for Township Council

Three council seats up for grabs

The township clerk's office released the names of all seven candidates that made Monday's filling deadline for the upcoming municipal elections.

Candidates are competing for three township council seats in the May election.

Terms for council president Patricia Spango and council members Sal Anderton and Joe Krakoviak will expire this year.

All three incumbents will seek re-election to a four-year term but not without some competition.

Residents Jerry Guarino, Rodolfo Rodriguez, Clare Silvestri and Jake Freivald have also thrown their names in the ring.

Both Guarino and Rodriguez have run for township council before, according to the clerk's office.

Silvestri is also the wife of councilman Krakoviak.

Officials will hold a random drawing for ballot placement March 22.

A month ago, I would have handicapped this race with the three incumbents being re-elected. Now, I think Mr. Krakoviak has shot himself in the foot by establishing a ticket comprised of himself, his wife and Jake Freivald. I'm picking Anderton, Guarino and Spango...in that order...Krakoviak in a distant 4th place, Freivald 5th, Silvesti 6th and Rodriguez last.
