Bergen County Democratic Vice Chair Kay Nest, who’s filling in while indicted Chairman Joe Ferriero takes a leave of absence, said tonight that the party will not make any decision on its permanent leadership until after the November 4th election.
That decision was the product of a discordant meeting of the Bergen County Executive Committee members that took place this morning.
“The Executive Committee of the Bergen County Democratic Organization met today regarding the future of the party. Though there were clearly differing opinions on a variety of topics, all in attendance agreed to move forward as one united party. A unanimous vote was taken, and all in attendance agreed to postpone any discussion regarding the change in leadership and focus on electing Democrats in the upcoming November election. I am humbled by the confidence the Executive Committee has shown in me, and I will not let them down,” said Nest in a prepared statement. “I have no doubt, that a united Democratic Party will be successful in November, from the bottom to the top of the ticket.”
