A failed candidate for the state Senate last year, Michael J. Cino of Demarest resurfaced today as a 5th District candidate for Congress.
"This District has been improperly represented for far too long by someone who takes far too much money from Wall Street and Hedge Fund lobbyists," Cino said, taking aim at U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett (R-5). "That is not in the economic interests of the people of Northern New Jersey."
Bergen County Republican Organization chairman Bob Yudin is already on record in support of giving the line to Garrett, infuriating Cino.
"It is time we get a fresh approach to the economic crisis facing this nation," said the businessman. "Having a congressman who takes so much money from Wall Street and Hedge Fund interests is simply not the way to stimulate economic growth and getting out of the economic crisis."
Teaneck Deputy Mayor Adam Gussen, a Democrat, announced earlier this week that he is challenging Garrett.
The Passaic County Building and Construction Trades Council today endorsed Andre Sayegh for Mayor citing his effective leadership, efforts to combat crime, and promotion of business and overall economic development in the City of Paterson.Read More >

"This is my first Mark Smith event. There have been a lot of changes in Hudson County over the last year and a half, and the most important change that has happened is that there really is unity. For the first time, we really are working together. Despite political differences. Mark and I have worked very hard to repair that. I'm really happy to be here in support of him, because I recognize that when you work together, politics becomes secondary and you really have time to focus on government, which is the most important thing." - Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop- PolitickerNJ.com
