Haledon, NJ – Haledon Mayor Domenick Stampone put out the following statement on the resignation of Passaic County Sheriff Jerry Speziale:
Sheriff Jerry Speziale has done a magnificent job over the last nine years managing the Sheriff’s Department, decreasing crime rates throughout the County, and aiding local officials in keeping our children and families safe. Passaic County’s loss is the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s gain. His expertise, energy, and passion for law enforcement will be missed.
Throughout my time as an elected official in Haledon – first on the Borough Council and the last four years as Mayor – Sheriff Speziale has always been a strong partner in solving problems facing our community and working with me to find cost effective collaborations to save our constituents tax dollars.
Although this news comes as a shock to the Passaic County Democratic Organization, I am confident we will field a capable, qualified candidate who can continue the strong progress made in the Sheriff’s Department under Sheriff Speziale’s leadership.
