This week will begin with new school board members and is scheduled to continue Wednesday with the swearing in Gary DiNardo as new mayor of Warren Township.

Newly elected Watchung Hills High School board members Robert Morrison and Peter Fallon — although Fallon actually is returning after a brief hiatus from serving — are scheduled to be sworn in at 6 p.m. on Monday.

The meeting is scheduled to be held in the south auditorium of the Watchung Hills High School campus at 108 Stirling Road in Warren.

The Warren Township Board of Education is scheduled to hold its first meeting of 2014 at 7 p.m. on Monday at the board office at Mount Horeb Road in Warren Township. 

The winning write-in candidates from November, Celeste Campos and Lisa DiMaggio, will join the the board. The two new board members will begin three-year terms along with James Sena, a one-term incumbent who had filed to be placed on the ballot.

The first meeting of the year for the Warren Township Committee — at which 2013's deputy mayor, Gary DiNardo, is expected to be chosen as mayor, with Township Committeeman Mick Marion to be moved up to deputy mayor — is scheduled for 6 p.m. this Wednesday, Jan. 8.

The meeting, originally scheduled a day earlier, has been moved since DiNardo was unable to make the first date, said members of the Township Committee. Each year, under Warren's form of government, the members of the committee vote to select a mayor and deputy mayor for a one-year term.

DiNardo will replace this year's mayor, Victor Sordillo, who will continue serving as Township Committeeman. DiNardo and Sordillo were running mates in 2012 before they were re-elected to the all-Republican Township Committee.

Township Committeewoman Carolann Garafola also will be sworn onto a seventh term, ceremonially, after she was officially due to be sworn in at home last week since her husband could not make the meeting of Jan. 8.
