GLEN ROCK, NJ - The Borough Council appointed Caroline Unzaga to fill an unexpired council term left vacant when Kristine Morieko was elected mayor in November.
Unzaga took the oath of office on January 8 during the regular council meeting.
Morieko, a Democrat, has two years left in her term. Unzaga may serve for one year, but must run for election in the fall to complete the final year of the three-year term.
The Borough Council is fully Democrat, as Republicans Michelle Torpey and Mike O'Hagan exited in December. Torpey was defeated in the fall election and O'Hagan did not run for re-election.
Glen Rock's governing body consists of a mayor and six council members elected at large, according to the borough website. Two council members are elected each year for three-year terms and the mayor is elected for four years. The mayor is the chief executive officer for the borough.
TAPinto expects to catch up with Unzaga in the coming weeks for a more lengthy interview.
