Former Assemblyman and Carlstadt Mayor Harold A. Pareti died yesterday.
He was 85.
Pareti, a lifelong Carlstadt resident, served five terms as the mayor of Carlstadt — 1959 and 1965, and again from 1967 to 1971. He served one term in the Assembly, from 1971 to 1973, and ran for state Senate against Anthony Scardino, Jr. He went on to wage an unsuccessful challenge to Henry Helstoski for Congress in 1974.
