Lyndhurst Mayor mulls challenge to Sarlo

Lyndhurst Mayor Richard DiLascio is considering a bid for State Senate against Democratic incumbent Paul Sarlo in 2007, several South Bergen GOP leaders say. DiLascio was elected Mayor of Lyndhurst in 2005, heading a slate of local candidates that ousted longtime Mayor James Guida. Running with Assembly Minority Leader Paul DiGaetano, he lost a 2003 Assembly race to Democrat Frederick Scalera by 1,302 votes, and won 36% of the vote in a 1997 Republican primary against incumbent State Senator John Scott.
