LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Granell, McClintock say thank you to supporters

(Nov. 18, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

We would like to thank the voters of North Arlington for their support during our campaign for borough council.

Running for office is a difficult task that asks so much of your time and energy. At the same time the process is an education in democracy, people, politics and public policy.

While we were not successful, we believe offering voters a contrasting point-of-view on the issues facing North Arlington is just as important as victory or defeat.

LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Councilmen make pledge

(Nov. 18, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

We would like to thank all of those who worked on our behalf during the recent re-election for North Arlington Borough Council and express our sincere gratitude to the voters for coming out to support us at the polls.

We also want to congratulate Mayor Peter Massa on his reelection. As we pledged in our campaign literature we will work to create an atmosphere where everyone can work together for a better community.

The borough faces many critical challenges in the year ahead. We look forward to meeting them and working to change things in North Arlington for the better.

It is a privilege to serve in public office. We pledge to work hard, to listen to the people we represent and to give them straight talk in return.

Richard Hughes / Joseph Bianchi / North Arlington Councilmen

OpinionEDITORIAL: Let's hope for the best

(Nov. 18, 2010) — With the election now over and candidates getting ready to become public officials, it’s time for the annual post-mortem.

In local races in South Bergen, not much changed. All of the incumbents won in North Arlington, East Rutherford and Carlstadt. Wood-Ridge and Rutherford saw newcomers fill open slots on their governing bodies.

Only Wallington, where Celina Urbankowski claimed victory, did a challenger actually overcome an incumbent (that incumbent being Robert Ryaby).

Breaking NewsELECTION 2010: Bergen County executive results

Photo by James Dombrowski

HASBROUCK HEIGHTS (Nov. 3, 2010) — Republican Kathleen Donovan beat incumbent Democrat Dennis McNerney on Tuesday, Nov. 2 in the race for county executive. With 446 out of 553 precincts reporting, Donovan led the vote tally 96,687 to McNerney’s 82,326. All of the results are unofficial. Donovan claimed victory at the VFW in Hasbrouck Heights on election night. She was surrounded by her campaign supporters.

The race between McNerney and Donovan was highlighted by debates on Bergen County’s blue laws, property taxes, the millions of dollars used to restore Overpeck Park, the future plans for the Meadowlands Sports Complex and open space. Donovan, a Rutherford resident and current county clerk, cast McNerney as a product of the Bergen County Democratic machine. McNerney, in turn, said Donovan was unaware of the intricacies of being county executive. The two debated at the Williams Center in Rutherford in early October as part of the ongoing Leader Forum series.
