Gerardo Torres, brother of Paterson Mayor Joey Torres, has picked up petitions to run for City Council in the Second Ward against Torres nemesis Councilman Aslon Goow.
Goow said he could track his bad blood with the mayor back to when another Torres brother wanted to open a liquor store on a corner where they had some problems with gangs.
"We had just cleaned it up, and now he wants to go and put a liquor store there," said Goow, a two-term councilman. "He threatened, we went to court and we shut him down."
A Paterson native, Goow is a police sergeant in Haledon and a private investigator who works with his own brother.Read More >
In a battle to succeed Orange Mayor Mims Hackett, mayoral candidate Donald Page formally introduced his three council running mates at a reception in Verona last night.
"My friends – it is time for ‘A New Beginning,’" Page, an at-large councilman, told an audience at the Richfield Regency. "It is time to put an end to politics as usual. It is time to put an end to a city government that only works for special interests and political friends. It is time to do something about property taxes. It is time do something about crime."
The candidate, who last November announced his intentions to run for mayor, last night welcomed Rayfield Morton, Antoine "Tony" Desormes and Andrea Elliot as his running mates.Read More >
