Rumana faction prevails in County Committee races

The contest for Passaic County Republican Chairman extended into five municipalities in Tuesday’s primary with contested races for County Committee seats. According to a Passaic GOP source, unofficial tallies without absentee battlots give a significant edge to Wayne Mayor Scott Rumana, who is expected to battle a coalition backed by incumbent County Chairman Michael Mecca and former County Chairman Peter Murphy. The Rumana faction appears to have won 57 of 76 seats in Paterson, 70 of 90 in Clifton, 24 of 26 in West Milford, 20 of 60 in Passaic, and 78 of 82 in Wayne.
