Scarpelli seeks 2nd term as NADA director

November 22, 2010
Nominating ballots for NADA directors will be mailed April 30 to dealers in Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties. Ray Scarpelli, incumbent director for Metro Chicago and principal of Raymond Chevrolet in Antioch and Ray Chevrolet in Fox Lake, is seeking re-election. Scarpelli, first elected in 2002 to complete an unexpired term, now seeks a three-year turn to represent dealers in those three counties. Vic Koenig, the NADA director who represents dealers in Illinois's other 99 counties, would be up for re-election next year. Nominating ballots must be returned not later than May 21 in the pre-addressed, postage-paid envelope that will accompany the ballots. Ballots postmarked after that date will not be counted. The names of all nominees who appear on at least 10 percent of all ballots cast shall be placed on election ballots. Those election ballots would be sent to dealers June 18. If only one candidate receives at least 10 percent of the votes on nomination ballots, that nominee shall be declared elected without further balloting. Scarpelli serves on the NADA's Membership, Public Affairs, and Dealership Operations Committees. "A big task," he said, "is making dealers aware of what the NADA does for them, and trying to get them to get involved and to stay involved."
