Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Kinnelon is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The governing body consists of a Mayor and a Borough Council comprising six council members, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council consists of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[5] The Borough form of government used by Kinnelon, the most common system used in the state, is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[29][30]

As of 2014, the Mayor of Kinnelon is Republican Robert W. Collins, whose term of office ends December 31, 2014.[31] Members of the Borough Council are Council President Gary Moleta (R, 2014), Stephen Cobell (R, 2016), James Freda (R, 2016), Clifford Giantonio (R, 2014; serving an unexpired term), Dan O'Dougherty (R, 2015) and Carol Sventy (R, 2015).[32][33]

Selected by a 3-2 majority of the borough council from among three potential candidates, Clifford Giantonio was sworn into office in April 2014 to fill the vacant seat of Ronald Mondello, who had resigned in the previous month citing personal and work conflicts.[34]

For the 2014-2015 Session, the 26th Legislative District of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the State Senate by Joseph Pennacchio (R, Montville) and in the General Assembly by BettyLou DeCroce (R, Parsippany-Troy Hills) and Jay Webber (R, Morris Plains) and [43][44] The Governor of New Jersey is Chris Christie (R, Mendham Township).[45] The Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey is Kim Guadagno (R, Monmouth Beach).[46]

Morris County is governed by a seven-member Board of Chosen Freeholders, who are elected at-large to three-year terms on a staggered basis, with either two or three seats up for election each year as part of the November general election. The Freeholder Board sets policies for the operation of six super-departments, more than 30 divisions plus authorities, commissions, boards and study committees.[47] Actual day-to-day operation of departments is supervised by County Administrator, John Bonanni.[48] As of 2014, Morris County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director Thomas Mastrangelo (Montville, term ends December 31, 2016),[49] Deputy Freeholder Director David Scapicchio (Mount Olive Township, 2015),[50] Douglas Cabana (Boonton Township, 2016),[51] John Cesaro (Parsippany-Troy Hills Township, 2015),[52] Kathryn A.
