MyVeronaNJ-Retro-VoterTwo seats on the Verona Town Council will be up for election this May, and if you want to be a candidate for one of them, you can now go to Town Hall to pick up an election packet and begin collecting the necessary signatures for your petition.

To be a candidate, you must be a registered voter in Verona and a town resident for at least one year. You must get at least 113 signatures for your petition to be considered valid, but Municipal Clerk Jennifer Kiernan is recommending that potential candidates get 120 signatures in case some are invalidated. Verona residents can sign up to two petitions because there are two seats up for election, the seats currently filled by Deputy Mayor Michael Nochimson and Councilman Alex Roman. (Councilman Roman will run for re-election; Deputy Mayor Nochimson has not yet replied to a message seeking information. ) If a resident signs a third petition, that signature will be invalidated.
