WEST ORANGE, NJ - Ballots were drawn on Sept. 12 for the Nov. 4 Mayoral and Township Elections. 

West Orange Township Clerk Karen Carnevale and clerk Joanne Behar ran the ballot pull with candidates and representatives of the candidates. The drawing determines the order the candidate will appear on the ballot in November.

Ballot positions for Mayor were drawn first with Rodolfo Rodriguez getting the first slot, followed by Robert Parisi, Joe Krakoviak, and Eldridge Hawkins, Jr.

Ballot positions for Township Council were then drawn, with Susan McCartney, followed by Jean-Claude Cenatus, Akil Khalfani, Robert Hoatson, Christopher DarConte, Victor Cirilo and Irving Schwarzbaum.

Most of the township council candidates are affiliated with mayoral candidates. It is expected that incumbent Mayor Parisi will run with incumbents Susan McCartney and Victor Cirilo; Jean-Claude Cenatus has already announced that he is running with Rodolfo Rodriguez. It remains unclear as to who Khalfani, Hoatson, DarConte and Schwarzbaum may be running with, and Tap into West Orange will provide that information as it becomes available.
