To the Editor:

The time has come for change in the Township of Nutley.

Historically, only a select few have been appointed to serve on our Township boards. It is time for our commissioners to reach farther and wider into our community and give others an opportunity to serve.  The Nutley Coalition for Change believes change is good, change is necessary. We ask you to join us in appealing to our leaders to enact term limits for board appointments.

If you agree, please take the time to SIGN THE PETITION on line at Term Limits for Township of Nutley, Appointed Board Members on or email for a copy of the petition.

A few Reasons to Sign this Petition:

  • -       Term limits will provide opportunities for new appointees to offer current insights.
  • -       Term limits cultivates new leadership that builds on the work of former members.
  • -       Term limits will ensure board members with new ideas, new passion, and a fresh perspective.
  • -       Term limits will provide an opportunity for more Nutley citizens to be appointed to our boards.


This is a petition to the Township of Nutley Board of Commissioners to enact a local ordinance for term limits of two (2) consecutive three (3) year terms on our local quasi-judicial boards. Petition signatures AND a formal request will be shared by the organizing Committee of the Nutley Coalition for Change with Mayor Joseph Scarpelli and Commissioners Thomas Evans, Alphonse Petracco, Steven Rogers and Mauro Tucci at the scheduled Board of Commissioners public meeting on November 6, 2018.

Signatures will be collected online at  Term Limits for Township of Nutley, Appointed Board Members on and in person between August 1, 2018 and November 5, 2018.

My signature on this petition confirms my support for the Board of Commissioners of Nutley NJ to enact an ordinance for term limits of two (2) consecutive three (3) year terms for appointments for board members on the following quasi-judicial Nutley NJ Township Boards:

·      Zoning Board of Adjustment

·      Planning Board

·      Rent Leveling Board

·      Library Board of Trustees

I am in support of term limits on Nutley NJ Township Board appointments. Term Limits will provide an opportunity for more Nutley Citizens to be involved and engaged in shaping the future of our Township.

Thank you for supporting change in Nutley.
