Today is Election Day

Ridgefield residents will head to the polls today to consider two questions: Should Mayor Anthony Suarez be recalled and if so, who should replace him?

One of 44 assorted politicians, rabbis and operatives charged last summer in Operation Bid Rig III, Suarez has not yet stood trial, and refuses to step down from office. In contrast to Secaucus Mayor Dennis Elwell and Hoboken Mayor Peter Cammarano, he is the only mayor hit with charges last year who did not surrender his seat of power.   

Vying to replace Suarez are Councilman Javier Acosta, engineer Warren Vincentz and train conductor Albert Gil. Today is Election Day
