Council Members Anderton, Spango to Seek Re-Election

Councilman Krakoviak has not announced

Three of the five council seats in West Orange are up for grabs in the 2012 municipal election. Terms for and council members Sal Anderton and Joe Krakoviak will expire this year.

Anderton and Spango told Patch last week they would seek re-election come May.

"I'm going to run hard, I'm going to run to win," Anderton told Patch. "Come March I'll be out knocking on doors, whether there's three people or nine I'm going to run hard."

Both council members are completing their first four-year terms.

Krakoviak has not yet announced whether he will run again.

The councilman was in November 2010, replacing incumbent , who was filling in the vacant council seat left by now-Mayor Robert Parisi.

The deadline to file candidate petitions is March 5 at 4 p.m. Interested candidates should contact the township clerk's office for more information at (973) 325 4155.

Spango does not have a chance to be re-elected, there will be far better candidates than her vying for the seat who deserve it more than her.

For more years than I can remember I have written letters to the Editor about ugly campaign signs. We can only hope that these signs will be kept to a minimum, off the ramps of 280 and within the rules of the Zoning Ord. I suggest that all of the candidates review the requirements and that the Zoning Officer makes sure that ALL of the candidates follow the rules!

Unfortunately, she (and Councilman Anderton) will be probably be re-elected. Ineptitude is no barrier to public office in West Orange.
