ROSELLE/ROSELLE PARK, NJ - The numbers are in for this November 2019 election and here are the unofficial results for both Municipalities and School Boards.
Starting with the heated Roselle Park race, on the Municipal level for Council, it is Republican candidate William Fahoury to retain his seat in the 3rd Ward over Democratic candidate Paul Baiamonte.
In the the 4th Ward its a close race, to close to call with Democratic candidate Michael Connelly taking 168 votes to most likely retain his seat in the 4th Ward over challenger Republican candidate Edmund Fahoury, Jr. with 159 votes, but right now it will have to wait until the final mail-in and provisional final votes are counted. Both seats are 3-year terms.
In the Roselle Park Board of Education election voters chose Loren Harms, Joseph Signorello, Jr. and Marc Fernandez for a 3-year term, and Khamele McLeod-Cato ran unopposed for the 2- year unexpired term.
In Roselle, there was only three Column A Democratic candidates on the ballot and there are no Republican candidates.
Mayor Christine Dansereau will continue on for another 4-year term. Councilwoman Denise Wilkerson will move from 1st. Ward to Council-at-Large, (leaving the 1st. Ward seat vacant for a short while until a person is chosen), and Cindy Thomas will come on board as the 4th Ward Council Member. Both council seats are for a 3-year term.
