TPAF Board Election Information

N.J.A.C. 17:3-1.4, sets forth the procedure for the election of a member-trustee.

The 2018 election of the member-trustee position for the Board of Trustees of the Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund (TPAF) from Group B, commencing on January 1, 2019 will begin in September 2018.  The method by which voting will take place will be an electronic ballot via the Member Benefits Online System (MBOS).  The anticipated period during which delegates may cast their vote is September 17, 2018 – October 5, 2018.  The anticipated period during which eligible alternates may cast their vote is October 15, 2018 – November 2, 2018.  The candidate that receives the highest number of votes cast by the selected county delegates, or the delegates’ qualified alternate, shall be appointed as a member-trustee.  The candidates are:

Candidate #1:  Kathleen L. Paterek

My name is Kathleen Paterek, and I have been a high school English/Language Arts teacher in Morris County for 22 years. I am currently serving my second term on the NJEA Pension Policy Committee. As such, I bring a great deal of knowledge regarding the NJ pension system to this position. I am the only candidate with any pension policy experience. I have spent the last three years immersed in the matters of the greatest concern to members of the TPAF. This work has prepared me to take on this most important position.

Additionally, I am active on the local, county, and state levels of the NJEA. At the local level, I serve as the 1st Vice-President/Negotiations Chair, Pension Committee Chair, and as Chief Building Rep/Association Rep; I am also currently involved in negotiating a new contract for the members of my local; on the county level, I serve on the County Rep Council as a representative for my district as well as on the Pension Policy Committee; at the state level, I am an elected Delegate to the Delegate Assembly (DA) for Morris County, a member of the DA Rules Committee, and was elected as a State Delegate to attend this year’s Regional Assembly in MInneapolis. Through both my broad-based experience and my committee work on the pension, I bring a strong union voice that is well-versed in pension issues and concerns to this position.

Candidate #2:  James R. Costello

My interest in seeking the position as Group B Trustee dates back nearly five years ago when I signed on to vote.  Over the past five years I read all of the public information on the activities of the Board. In February, I attended the TPAF Board meeting.

I would be a strong member of the Board because I bring a set of experiences that few teachers could match. I would ask the TPAF Board members to allow me to represent them as their appointee to the State Investment Council, the group overseeing those securities that our pension fund invests.

For the past 17 years I was a union member of Passaic County’s Clifton Teacher’s Association (CTA), teaching business.  Earlier, I spent 2 years as a substitute. I taught in-home instruction at Passaic County Summer School. In 2012, I ran for CTA Union President.

Before teaching, several career stops gave me a combination of analytical, financial, and literary skills. As editor/publisher of scientific newsletters, I wrote on superconductivity and diamond thin films. At Engelhard Corporation, I was Corporate Planner, Director—Business Planning, and Manager of Acquisitions. At Exxon, I worked as a laboratory technician in catalysis and CO2 absorption.

I graduated ranked #1 at Rutgers University, BS—Management then from Wharton Graduate, University of Pennsylvania, MBA—Finance.

My residences include Colonia—graduated Woodbridge HS, Edison, New Brunswick, Old Bridge, Sayreville, South Brunswick, Freehold, Manasquan, Long Hill, Franklin Township, and currently, the Oak Ridge Section of Jefferson Township.

Candidate #3:  Todd Pipkin

I am employed as a teacher in the Paterson Public School system where I have worked for over twenty five years. During this time, I have diligently served our union on the local, county, state, and national levels. I have been on my local Executive Board for twelve years. During my tenure, I have been chair of the Instructional Council, an elected officer (Treasurer), and now currently the co-chair for the Human Relations Committee. In addition, I have also been a part of our Negotiations Team. My other responsibilities include being on the Passaic County Rep Council and the representative for the NJEA Urban Ed. Committee. On a national level, I have been elected as a delegate for the National Education Association Representative Assembly since 2011.
I consider myself to be an analytical thinker. Developing an in depth knowledge on finance has empowered me to be a successful independent investor in the stock market for decades.  Utilizing this skill set has allowed me to conduct educational financial enrichment classes for many colleagues. These cumulative experiences have given me the ability to make a positive impact wherever I go. In closing, I am certain that I can provide valuable insight and would be an asset as a board member on the Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund.

Candidate #4:  Edward Yarusinsky

My name is Ed Yarusinsky. I live in Hillsborough, Somerset County with my wife and 11 year old son. I am a recently retired social studies teacher, and NJEA member, of 40 years from Warren County. I have held many positions in my local union that has included grievance, legislative, membership, and negotiations. I have been local president for over 17 years. I have served as our county Government Relations chair and most recently as county treasurer. On the state level, I was a member of the NJEA Exceptional Children and the NJEA Vocational, Career, and Technical Education committees. I served as Chair of the latter. I also have served as an NJEA Executive Committee member for the past six years.
I decided to seek election on the TPAF Board of Trustees in order to use my experience as an active NJEA member in my retirement. I have represented teachers, paraprofessionals, custodial and maintenance staff, secretaries, bus drivers, and aides in grievance and legal proceedings that have involved contractual, as well as personal, circumstances. I continue to fight for the full funding of the pension system, the reinstatement of the COLA for retirees, and the protection of our health benefits. I have been, and will continue to be, an advocate for NJEA and NJREA members on the TPAF Board of Trustees as a representative of Group B for a three year term.
