Bergen County Board of Elections Commissioner Rosina Romano received a call today from Bergen County GOP Chairman Bob Yudin notifying her that the chairman does not intend to resubmit her name to the governor's office for reappointment as a commissioner.
“I’m totally disheartened and very disappointed,” Romano told PolitickerNJ.com. “I worked very hard and I also was very active with the Bergen County Republican Organization.”
Romano served a two-year term.
A source said Yudin plans to submit the name of BCRO Program Chair Jamie Sheehan-Willis as Romano’s replacement.
A former South Hackensack mayor and GOP county committee loyalist, Romano said Yudin did not give her a clear reason for why he does not intend to back her reappointment.
“I took pride in this position and was grateful to the BCRO for letting me have this position,” she said. “It’s ultimately the governor’s office’s decision and I hope the governor’s office sees the situation differently. I’m holding out hope.”
The term ends in March.
Romano’s would-be replacement, Sheehan-Willis, had the position for 16 years prior to taking a job in the clerk’s office.
