Saddle River NJ, a defeated incumbent from the recent Board of Education election has been appointed to fill the unexpired term of a fellow trustee. Evelyn Nissirios, who lost her bid to newcomer Kunal Bhatia, was chosen to complete the remaining one-year term of former trustee John Peros at the December 13 board meeting. Although Nissirios was defeated by Bhatia for the full three-year term in November, the board expressed hope that having both candidates, who received voter confidence, would foster community unity. Peros resigned in October, triggering a 65-day window for the board to fill the vacant seat. Nissirios’ appointment was accepted on December 6th.

The board, following guidelines from the New Jersey Department of Education, selected Nissirios after reviewing applications and conducting public interviews. The reason for emphasizing unity in the community was not explicitly explained by Board of Education President Emily Kaufman. However, the appointment comes after a recent dispute over discriminatory busing practices, and a potential disagreement over the district’s $78,000 feasibility study regarding middle school education options is on the horizon. Parents have raised concerns about the study’s focus and have called for exploring additional options beyond the current arrangement with Ramsey. The district is expected to issue a report in January, addressing community questions on its website.
