Sayegh smacks Torres in first mailer of his campaign

PATERSON – A contrast mailer in the Paterson Mayoral contest shows pictures of Council President Andre Sayegh on one side – at the scene of what appears to be a fire, with city trucks and firefighters.

On the other side, the mailer turns the hoses on former Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres.

The piece is the first mailbox salvo of the season from Sayegh, and features a starburst exclamation of the candidate’s support from the likes of U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-9) and Assemblyman Benjie Wimberly (D-35).
