East Rutherford School Board Elects New President and Vice-President

In a notable development from the latest East Rutherford School Board meeting on January 3rd, 2024, Gina Lorusso was elected as the Board President, and Thomas Banca assumed the Vice-Presidency. The elections followed the swearing-in of board members Maria Caruso and Irena Mena, who won the annual school election with 644 and 702 votes respectively.

The meeting commenced with the formalities of the public meetings law, followed by the election results announcement.

The Board transitioned to leadership appointments where Gina Lorusso was nominated and unanimously elected as the new Board President. The process was guided by Thomas Kobin, the Board Attorney, who ensured adherence to procedural protocol. Similarly, Thomas Banca was nominated and elected as Vice-President, succeeding Antonio Segalini.

Moreover, the Board read and acknowledged the School Board Code of Ethics, which emphasizes the ethical standards and responsibilities of the members.

The meeting also included approval of organizational meeting resolutions A1 through A39, with a recusal by one member on resolution A39. Public comments were invited, though there were none, and the meeting concluded with a motion to enter into Executive session to discuss Personnel matters. The Board indicated that minutes from the session would be made public when appropriate.

The next East Rutherford School Board meetings are scheduled for January 11th at 7 PM and January 18th at 6 PM, the latter to accommodate a training session.
