Gov. Jon Corzine is scheduled tomorrow to swear-in Passaic Mayor Alex Blanco as the first Dominican-American elected to a full term as a mayor in the United States.
Blanco last year won a special election in Passaic to succeed jailed former Mayor Sammy Rivera.
In May, he again defeated city supervisor Vincent Capuana to earn a four-year term.
Also scheduled to attend tomorrow's ceremony in Passaic is U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-Hoboken), who was the featured speaker at Blanco's kick-off in April.
The Star-Ledger will make a "significant announcement" to employees early next month, according to a source.Read More >
