Aronsohn bashes BCDO

In an op-ed on BlueJersey.com, Ridgewood Councilman Paul Aronsohn is complaining about aspects of the Bergen County Democratic Organization convention on Thursday to elect a successor for County Chairman Joseph Ferriero. Aronsohn, the 2006 Democratic candidate for Congress in the fifth district, says that the “convention was hastily scheduled … not by the Executive Committee, but by the outgoing Chairman, who was directed to resign by January 15 by the Executive Committee due to his indictment on corruption charges.”

Aronsohn also says that BCDO lawyer Paul Kaufman “was summarily fired … not by the Executive Committee, but by the outgoing Chairman, who was directed to resign by January 15 by the Executive Committee due to his indictment on corruption charges.” He also says that Michael Kasparian, “the presumed winner of Thursday's convention was hand-picked … not by the rank-and- file, but by the outgoing Chairman, who was directed to resign by January 15 by the Executive Committee due to his indictment on corruption charges.”

If the anti-Ferriero forces were to win the chairmanship, Aronsohn could be a potential candidate for Bergen County Executive in 2010. Aronsohn bashes BCDO
