LETTER 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.

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

of being county executive. The two debated at the Williams Center in
Rutherford in early October as part of the ongoing Leader Forum series.
