Good luck, buddy. Promoted by Rosi
Just wanted to share the news here first: this morning, the Passaic County Democratic Organization’s Executive Committee voted to select me as the party’s choice for Passaic County Clerk. Our full County Committee will meet Wednesday, March 26, hopefully to confirm that choice, and then it will be off to the races.
The County Clerk serves Passaic County’s 500,000+ residents in some of the more important matters of their lives – recording real estate Deeds and Mortgages, processing Passports and Veteran’s ID cards, and even … wait for it … performing marriage ceremonies! And, significantly, the Clerk’s office also processes the County’s Vote by Mail Ballots (almost 20,000 of them last year – and growing). It is an enormously important role.
I’m honored. I’m humbled, and I’m really excited to get started. 2014 is a terrific year to be running as a Democrat in Passaic County, with Senator Booker and Congressman Pascrell at the top of the ticket, Freeholders Bruce James and TJ Best running for reelection, and great municipal races with strong candidates throughout the County. (And everyone reading this is invited to come join us!)
Although I’ll be taking a campaign hiatus from the frontpage at Blue Jersey, I’ll still be reading here and writing about politics and my own race in the sidebar. So, stay tuned, and wish me luck! 🙂
