The Republicans are now running Toni K. Giordano instead of Kevin Leary, with Scott Klinder as her running mate. This, then is the lineup in Kenilworth:
Mayor: GOP - Kathi Fiamingo; Democrats - Peter Corvelli, Jr.; Ind. - Walter Sosnosky
Council: GOP - Scott Klinder and Toni K. Giordano; Democrats - Anthony DeLuca and Kay Anne Ceceri
