HASBROUCK HEIGHTS – Cheers and applause rang out at the Bergen County Democrats' Election Day headquarters a moment ago as the party’s county chairman declared things are “looking good.”
Lou Stellato, chairman of the Democratic Committee of Bergen County, just took to the floor to announce Democrats have pulled ahead in the race for two county freehold seats in Dumont, Paramus, North Arlington and Demarest.
“The Democrats have won in Hillsdale for the first time in a long time,” Stellato declared on the floor of the Hasbrouck Heights Hilton.
“This looks very good,” he said, receiving cheers from the two hundred or so who are gathered inside the hall.
Stellato said the race for Democratic hopefuls Steve Tannelli and Tracy Zur are not certain and that officials are still waiting for a number of precincts to return ballots, but added the returns they have received so far point things in the right direction for Democrats to take back control of the Board of Freeholders here in the state’s largest county.
“I know that every minute seems like an hour,” he said. “I will be back with new results.”
When Assemblyman Jason O'Donnell (D-31) tried to run across no man's land as the new chair of the Democratic State Committee, he figured he'd have at least his home county of Hudson behind him.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
