Incumbents Glenn Elliott and Michael Unis are both seeking re-election. They will be joined on the ballot by, James Day, a Windemere Road resident, and Judith DiNapoli, a former school district employee who lives on Hillside.
DiNapoli has, most recently, been involved in legal action with the Board of Education. After working for Verona schools for 35 years, DiNapoli accepted a promotion to assistant business administrator in 2009. Charles Sampson, Verona’s superintendent, eliminated that job in March 2011 and all non-tenured administrative assistant positions–which DiNapoli could have been re-hired for–were later eliminated by the BOE. DiNapoli sued on grounds that she had been wrongfully denied another position. A state administrative law judge issued a summary judgement in favor of DiNapoli in April 2012. The BOE appealed and the case is still on appeal.
