Professional & Public
Sanjiv has channeled his passion for public service to our community. He strongly believes in and champions the values of inclusion and mutual respect – and above all the desire to understand all opinions before finding a middle ground.
Upon his nomination, Sanjiv said, “I am honored to have the opportunity to run for Glen Rock’s Mayor. Moving to Glen Rock was the best decision I ever made and I want to continue giving back to this town that has given so much love and support to me and my family”.

First woman promoted to District Manager at A&P Pharmacy and managed operations of over 40 Pharmacies
Michelle is a registered Pharmacist in NY and NJ. She was the first woman promoted to District Manager at A&P Pharmacy and managed over 40 Pharmacies in that role across NY and NJ, responsible for operations and revenue. This helped develop her ability as a leader and with it a reputation for getting things done.
Today you may find her at Rock Ridge Pharmacy in town where she is a part-time staff Pharmacist. With Michelle’s background she took the lead in securing the town’s first secure Drug Disposal Box to help rid the town of old medications like opioids and also earn key points for Glen Rock with Sustainable New Jersey.
Since moving to Glen Rock, she has led a life of service across various volunteer organizations – a three-term HSA President for Byrd School, Boy Scout Pack leader, and Co-Chair of Glen Rock for Autism Awareness. She serves as Vice President for the Independence Day Parade Organization. She is currently the Co-Director of St. Catharine’s Religious Education.
Brought up in a family of mixed religious faiths, of both Catholic and Jewish descent, she has been a driving force in developing the Glen Rock Downtown for the Holidays Committee – which has helped bring a little holiday spirit and additional business back to our town.
Michelle previously ran for Council in the 2017 election. She is a 19-year resident of Glen Rock, where she lives with her husband Joe and three children, Caroline, Claire and Dan.

I met Michelle when she ran for a Glen Rock Borough Council seat two years ago and she impressed me. Michelle impressed me with her kindness and unselfish spirit. Michelle does not need a lawn statement proclaiming her convictions.

I am supporting Sanjiv Ohri for Mayor, and Michelle Torpey and Eric Schlett for Borough Council in the November 5th election. These three candidates together will bring integrity and trust to the Borough Council. They will lead our Borough with honor, respecting our ideas and opinions bringing everyone together.
– Art Pazan
I have known Sanjiv, Michele, and Eric for some time. As a relatively new member of town for 6 years, I have seen firsthand some of the tireless efforts from each of them. These 3 candidates earn my vote for these accolades and more. Particularly because they are amazing people with tremendous values. The great people of Glen Rock deserve great leaders. That’s why I will be voting for Sanjiv Ohri as Mayor, and Eric Schlett and Michelle Torpey for Town Council.
