The Bergen County Republican Organization this Saturday will sit down and hammer out a schedule for its upcoming annual NERO (Northeast Republican Organization) conference.
Once they determine a date, the organization’s main order of business pre-April 1 deadline will be to find a suitable LD 39 replacement for Assemblyman Robert Schroeder (R-39), who’s jammed up on charges of check-kiting.
Every significant party leader, including Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick, BCRO Chairman Bob Yudin, state Sen. Gerry Cardinale (R-39), and Assemblywoman Holly Schepisi (R-39) – wants Schroeder gone.
Since the GOP assemblyman's summertime woes, a list has emerged of prospective Assembly swap-ins: Robert Auth, chairman of the Old Tappan Municipal Committee; Old Tappan Mayor Victor Polce; Westwood Councilwoman Cindy Wanack; and Saddle River Councilwoman Karen Mastriano.
Former Bergen County Freeholder Rob Hermansen is also said to be trying to ferret out support for a run, but that is unconfirmed.
BCRO Chairman Yudin said he has not heard from Schroeder regarding the embattled assemblyman's future political plans.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
