I am much honored to have been asked to pen this letter for Linette Caroselli, a woman who has dedicated her life to working with people within her community. It has been my pleasure to know Linette for 20 years and she has always been that person who wanted to make things better not only for herself and her family but for everyone. She is a very committed team player but not afraid to step out and lead.

As a school teacher in Paterson, New Jersey,  Linette’s students always soared because of her preparedness and willingness to go above and beyond for her students.  Her students always knew that she was there for them. As a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Linette served the Northeastern Region as the undergraduate chapter coordinator making her responsible for all of the undergraduate members from Maine to North Carolina. This position required frequent traveling with the writing and enforcement of policy. She served in this position with distinction.

As a 12-year member of the Irvington Municipal Council from 2002-2014, Ms Caroselli worked with me on many community initiatives such as the Irvington Scholar Program and Community Development Zones. As a member of a Municipal Council you are responsible for legislating, investigating and appropriating.  Linette Caroselli is capable of these duties. She has the 4 E’s: she is Eloquent, Efficient, Experienced and Effective. A vote for Caroseill is a vote for good government, effective leadership and quality of life improvement.


Andrea C. McElroy is a former member of the Irvington, New Jersey, Municipal Council.
