Ellen Sandman to run for Denville Mayor

PARSIPPANY — The New Jersey Globe reported this morning that Parsippany-Troy Hills Business Administrator Ellen Sandman, will be running in the June 2019 primary for Mayor of Denville. Rumors have been circulating around Parsippany’s Town Hall that Sandman will be retiring from Parsippany after the 2018 budget process has completed.

Sandman was appointed by Former Mayor James Barberio to serve as Parsippany’s Business Administrator on June 16, 2014. Prior to joining Parsippany she was employed at Mendham Borough, where she held the same title for the previous six years, and in Denville for 22 years before that; she also served for five years as Assistant Business Administrator in Jersey City.

Running for Mayor is nothing new for Sandman. She ran in 2007 against Ted Hussa in the Republican primary and lost by nine votes in a very heated campaign. During that race Sandman had the endorsement of former Mayor Gene Feyl.

The current Mayor Thomas Andes was sworn in on January 1, 2012 and his term ends December 31, 2019. He also served on the Denville Town Council Ward 1, 2000-2011 and served as Denville Council President 2007, 2008 and 2010.

“Over the past six years we have made unprecedented improvements to our downtown, towards flood mitigation, to our infrastructure, our parks system and the financial stability of our community. Although we are still in the 2018 primary election cycle, I have stated on many occasions I will be running for re-election as Denville’s Mayor as there is still much I like to accomplish in all these areas,” stated Mayor Tom Andes.

Sandman earned $130,000 in 2013 in Mendham and was hired in Parsippany for $140,000. Sandman’s salary now exceeds $160,000.
