MEET OUR DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES FOR WARD COUNCIL
VOTE ROW A – TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3
JOE WOJTECKI (WARD 1), a three term Democratic Councilman, has consistently spoken out about wasting taxpayer’s money. He has been the fiscal watch dog for Ward 1, sitting on he Finance Committee in past terms. Joe believes in wise spending and understands that you must bring in revenue to offset annual budget increases. He and the other Democratic andidates know that supporting developments like Rivergate, the transit village type proposal for Wagaraw Road, will bring in millions of dollars in new taxes, bringing tax relief to current residents.
TOMMY BUSHNAUSKAS (WARD 2) is a young Democrat whose family has been active in our community for years. His uncle previously served as a Councilman in the Borough of Haledon. Tommy is concerned about the future of our town, and is running to help make smart decisions about new development. He is ready to work with neighbors on Central Avenue to reduce any traffic or other issues that arise because of the new apartment complex in that area. His interest is also in helping our town provide good educational and recreational choices for children and young people.
CINDY FRANK (WARD 4) is a long-time Borough resident and homeowner on 6th Avenue. Her neighborhood watchdog, she has been vocal in past years about traffic and other issues in her area. She worked with residents to find a solution to noise and traffic associated with Premio Sausage Company. Cindy volunteers with her therapy dog, Bella, for the Library’s Furry Tales program, is active in the Chamber of Commerce (as a small business owner), and is especially concerned about environmental issues (she was a member of the Hawthorne Green Team). Cindy is concerned about so many abandoned or underused properties in town, knowing that these properties should be developed to bring in more revenue to stabilize taxes.
