All three members of the Fair Lawn Board of Education who are up for reelection this year will have to defend their seats against a group of challengers.
Board President Mike Rosenberg, a teacher and life member of the Fair Lawn Rescue squad who served until 2011, and board members Cindy Jo Quackenbush and Mary Wallace, a retired teacher, are all seeking to keep their seats.
Former board member Ron Barbarulo, who served for a term before losing in last year's election, is looking to reclaim his seat.
Newcomers Vinko Grskovic, a former Libertarian Party candidate for State Assembly, and Ofelia Ramos, an ESL teacher, are also seeking seats on the board.
In Saddle Brook, there are a total of five school board seats up for election.
Board members Robert Naegely, Joseph Toth and Gerard Taylor, who was appointed to the board after resigning for an unsuccessful council run, are seeking new full terms. They are facing a crowded ticket in a three-seat race against Michael Accomando, who attempted a write-in campaign last year, David Gierek, Kim Scanapieco and Adam Mucci.
Board member Regina Barrale is running uncontested to keep the unexpired two-year seat she was appointed to in February.
Former board member Angela Robinson and Blase Billack, a two-time candidate for Congress, are competing for an unexpired one-year term.
The general election is scheduled for November 5.
