Paddor, Scarpelli vie for NADA post

November 11, 2010

Evanston Subaru owner Rob Paddor and Mark Scarpelli, proprietor of Raymond Chevrolet-Kia in Antioch, have been nominated to serve as the NADA director representing metropolitan Chicago.

Election ballots will be mailed June 25 by the NADA in McLean, Va., and must be returned postmarked by July 16.

Ray Scarpelli Sr., the incumbent since 2003, is stepping down when his term concludes in February 2011.

The NADA defines metropolitan Chicago as Cook, Lake, and DuPage Counties. Another NADA director represents the state’s 99 other counties. Rick Gregg held that position until his store closed in March. A special campaign to fill the post began in May, with completed nominating ballots due in the mail by June 11. Results should be known about June 18.

To qualify as a nominee, a dealer must receive at least 10 percent of the total nominations cast. If none receives that minimum, further nominations would be sought. If the nominating process qualifies a single dealer, that dealer would be declared elected without further balloting.
