RARITAN TWP., NJ – The Township Committee voted at its regular meeting Tuesday to not reappoint Acting Township Clerk Bill Bray to the post.

The vote was taken after a closed-door “executive session.”

Bray had taken the test to be certified by the state as a municipal clerk. He was awaiting the outcome of the test, which he had said he was confident he’d passed.

Bray was first appointed Acting Clerk last May, succeeding Rose Sollena, who retired after working 29 years for the township.

Officials voted to bring Sollena out of retirement and award her with a one-year appointment to the clerk’s position. But it isn’t expected she’ll be in the post that long. Instead, officials here will begin a search for a more permanent replacement for Bray.

Kristi Gano, the township’s part-time Deputy Clerk, will remain in her job.
