Scarpelli seeks 3rd term as NADA director for Metropolitan Chicago

November 17, 2010

Nominating ballots for NADA directors will be mailed about April 27 to dealers in Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties. Ray Scarpelli Sr., incumbent director for Metro Chicago and principal of Raymond Chevrolet and Kia in Antioch, and Ray Chevrolet and Suzuki in Fox Lake, is seeking re-election. 

Scarpelli, first elected in 2002, seeks a three-year term to represent dealers in those three counties. Richard Gregg, the NADA director who represents dealers in Illinois’s 99 other counties, would be up for re-election next year.


Nominating ballots must be returned not later than May 18 in the pre-addressed, postage-paid envelope that will accompany the ballots. Ballots returned 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 about 15. 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 Industry Relations Committee, which he said has persuaded manufacturers to listen more to dealer concerns. Scarpelli also is part of the Dealership Operations and the Public Affairs committees.
