MONTCLAIR – Bill Batkay stood among the public sector union throng that welcomed Montclair University alumnus Barbara Buono back to school.

The school, though, didn’t look the way it does when Buono went here in the early 1970s.

“It’s changed,” she said, standing amid the campus finery.

Batkay was part of the backdrop of American Federation of Teachers (AFT) New Jersey who cheered and whooped it up for Buono as they formally gave her their endorsement.
