The CNC also elected Richard Pinto to serve as vice chair of the Procedure Committee.
“Starting in late November, the CNC went to work in finding potential candidates for both Trustee and Mayor. Over the last 2 months, the CNC conducted extensive diligence along with hours of discussions. While our meetings and reference conversations are not shared publicly, the CNC considered and researched carefully the background, experience, and qualifications of each trustee and mayoral candidate and engaged in significant deliberations,” Eric Lichtenstein, chair of the CNC, stated in a press release.
The Inquirer will profile each of the candidates in upcoming editions prior to the election.
