Performance review ..

I work for nonprofit. In the past
performance reviews were done on annual
basis. Now with the change of mgmt as
of January 1, 2016, my old boss who
can vouch for 7 months of the year
review won’t be allowed to sit in on my
review instead my narcissistic jerk of
a new boss will be evaluating me from
January to May of this year. Is that
fair? That’s not a whole year and fear
my new boss will be a jerk. Mind you
I’ve been at this job for 10 years and
now all of the sudden this jerk can
have a say in my salary based on 5
months? He’s never been in mgmt before
here and he’s not easy to talk to
everything isnt his fault. What do i
do?

You really can't do anything about this. The fact is that in an "at will" work relationship, a company can set the conditions of employment much a sit sees fit. This includes how to conduct a performance review. That is unless this action violates the terms of company policy or an employment contract or union agreement. Also, your treatment must not constitute any form of legally actionable discrimination.
