With the filing deadline passing at 4 p.m. Monday, only two residents filed for the Township Committee seat primary election in June: Gary DiNardo and Vic Sordillo.
They will appear on the June primary ballot seeking the Republican party nomination for the two Township Committee seats they currently hold. No petitions were filed for candidates seeking Democratic nominations.
Both are familiar faces to Warren voters, with DiNardo having served as mayor last year and Sordillo in 2010. Sordillo is currently deputy mayor for the township.
"It has been an honor to serve the residents of Warren Township for almost 12 years," Sordillo said. "The greatest reward is being able to help people."
Sordillo noted after the storms in 2011 that left hundreds of Warren families without power, he visited many neighborhoods to reassure residents.
"We have a great team and have worked with the many volunteers to build a township that is the envy of most," he added. "We have great emergency services, acres of open space that limited development, many fantastic parks and playgrounds, as well as a host of activities for the elderly and children. When I speak to new residents and ask them why they moved to Warren, they tell me that it is the great school system, the many top rated facilities and the relatively low taxes. This has been my home for over 20 years and I am proud to be of service to the residents."
