HASBROUCK HEIGHTS – Bergen County Democrats say they’re edging closer to taking control of two county freehold seats.
If the two Democrats vying for the county positions clinch the election, Democrats will regain control of the Bergen County Board of Freeholders.
“We’re a half hour away from taking control,” said Lou Stellato, chairman of the Democratic Committee of Bergen County, who just announced the two candidates are 9,000 and 7,000 votes above their Republican contenders, including GOP incumbent Rob Hermansen.
“We’re not done yet,” declared Stellato, adding the momentum seems to be in their corner.

"It sounds like Councilman Baraka is talking about regionalization similar to what happened to the Camden Police Department. Clearly, if you regionalize, there is going to be a layoff of Newark workers. We cant afford to have more cops laid off right now. During Mr. Baraka's time on the council, the city laid off about 170 cops, when has led to our streets being much more dangerous than they need to be." - Newark Mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries, the former state Assistant Attorney General, referring to the disbandment of the South Jersey police force.- PolitickerNJ.com
