Passaic Freeholder candidate to drop

Democrat Joanne Graziano is expected to withdraw from the race for Passaic County Freeholder within the next few days. The Hawthorne Board of Education member was nominated after Democrats withdrew their support for embattled Arab American businessman Sami Merhi. In recent weeks, she has faced allegations that she did not have a masters degree that had been listed on her original resume. Graziano was seeking the seat of Freeholder Lois Cuccinello, who is not running for re-election.
