Montville Republicans nominate candidates for council, BOE spots
Montville — The Republican Town Committee nominated a mixed group of longtime GOP candidates and newcomers at its caucus Thursday, filling the Republican side of the ballot with the maximum number of Town Council candidates.
Seven people will run for five possible seats on the seven-member Town Council, which is now dominated 5-2 by Democratic members.
State law dictates that no more than five members of the seven-member board may represent the same party, but the party may nominate as many as seven people for the ballot.
The two incumbent Republican Town Council members, Joseph Rogulski and Kathleen Pollard, will be joined on the ballot by Wills Pike, Tom McNally and Jim Andriote, all familiar figures in town politics, and newcomers Ray Coggeshall and Jeff Rogers.
The Republicans’ Board of Education candidates, vying to fill five spots up for election, will include two incumbents, Steven Loiler and Joseph Aquitante III, as well as one new candidate, Dana Ladyga.
Pike also will be on the ballot as a candidate for the Board of Assessment Appeals, and Robert Yuchniuk was nominated to run for the Zoning Board of Appeals.
