New Milford Voters To Elect Two Council, Four School Board Members
A total of nine candidates are running in local elections—four for two seats on the Council, and four for three, three-year terms and one for a one-year term on the BOE. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
New Milford voters will go to the polls Tuesday, amid the continuing power outages, gas rationing and general sense of uncertainty Sandy left in its wake, with two Borough Council seats and two contested Board of Education seats at stake.
As in so many Bergen County towns, where polling locations had to be moved or changed, New Milford voters will vote in two places depending on district. District 1 through 7 will vote at Berkley School and Districts 8 and 9 will vote at the New Milford Library.
Republican incumbent, and Council President, Howard Berner, is running with former councilman Peter Rebsch while Democratic incumbent Austin Ashley is running with former councilman Michael Putrino.
