Scarafile says he’ll file tomorrow to run for commissioner of UC

Buried four years ago in his attempt to dethrone Union City Mayor Brian P. Stack, Little Ferry School Superintendent Frank Scarafile said he’s prepared to file his petitions tomorrow to again challenge Stack in the commissioners’ race.

“We’re going to hand in around 400 petitions,” Scarafile said. “I could hand in more but that would just give him more people to harrass. The more I give, the more people become targets.”

The city clerk’s office requires 275 good petition signatures to certify a candidate to run for commissioner.

“We handed in about half our petitions today,” said Stack spokesman Mark Albiez.

Stack’s forces submitted 625 petition signatures, Albiez said, and will submit more piecemeal prior to Thursday’s filing deadline.
