Bergen County Democratic Committee Chairman Lou Stellato issued a statement in support of Freeholder Jim Tedesco for county executive.
"Today, after consulting with many of our members, I am asking the committee to join me in supporting Freeholder and Former Paramus Mayor James Tedesco as the Democratic nominee for Bergen County County Executive," Stellato said. "Jim is unquestionably qualified and offers a brighter vision for Bergen County’s future, but what I find most impressive is his character. He is someone who as a two-term mayor continued to run into smoke filled houses as a volunteer firefighter and as a father was the rock of his family after the tragic passing of his wife.
"It was Jim as Paramus’ Deputy OEM Director who helped coordinate operations during the Garden State Plaza shooting and he was the first to call on for an investigation on the George Washington Bridge lane closings, well before it was national news,"the chairman added. "Jim Tedesco is a strong, decisive leader who builds consensus to get things done and understands the challenges of Bergen County’s families. Bergen County will be well served with Jim Tedesco as their County Executive."

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
