The Cinnaminson Board of Education held its annual reorganization meeting at 7:30 p.m. tonight after an hour-and-a-half closed executive session.
The public meeting included a swearing-in ceremony for four candidates who were elected on Nov. 8, 2016. Christine Trampé, Christine Turner and Jean Cohen were sworn in for a full three-year term, and Daniel Gaffney was sworn in for a one-year term.
After the ceremony, superintendent Dr. Salvatore Illuzzi thanked all of the officers for their services.
Besides Trampé, all the board officers that were sworn in were reelected.
Trampé said moving forward her main focus is finding a suitable candidate to fill Dr. Illuzzi’s position, who announced he would be retiring at the end of the 2016-17 school year in December via a letter.
“I want to continue to assist the board in keeping this district as one of the top districts in Burlington County,” she added. “I’m very grateful I was elected and selected, and, overall, I am just excited.”
Cohen was also nominated and elected as the board’s president, which was followed by the nomination and election of James McGuckin for the position of the board’s vice president.
Thomas Egan was re-appointed to the positions of board secretary, public agency compliance officer and district purchasing agent.
Mark Gidjunis was appointed as the treasurer of school moneys. Frank Cavallo, Jr. was re-appointed as school solicitor at the hourly rate of $170 for attorneys and $95 for paralegals. Robert Inverso was also re-appointed, but in the position of auditor with an annual fee of $29,375.
Mark Tindall and Ed Palmer were both appointed in positions of various management responsibilities.
The board will hold their next regular meeting on Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 120 at the middle school.
