HASBROUCK HEIGHTS – The floor shook at the Hasbrouck Heights Hilton when the chairman of the Democratic Committee of Bergen County declared: “Bergen County is back.”
Chairman Lou Stellato just declared Democratic freehold candidates Steve Tannelli and Tracy Zur clinched their bids for the Bergen County Board of Freeholders – turning control of the board from Republican to Democratic.
“We have control and we’re not going to lose it,” Stellato said to applause.

Party officials reported 95 percent of all votes have been counted and Democrats are up by 25,000.
“I’m speechless and for those of you who know me that seldom happens,” Zur said. “We got the vote out!”
