State Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Teaneck) sent an email yesterday to embattled Bergen County Democratic Organization Chairman Michael Kasparian demanding a long-delayed executive committee meeting.
Kasparian was canceling scheduled session after scheduled session dating back to last year, and Weinberg wanted answers.
Her email: “Mike – it is way overdue — when are you going to call an Executive Committee meeting to solicit input on the changes you have made over the last few months as well as the way in which our County Democratic elected officials did not participate in the new County Executive’s transition?”
Weinberg is one of several Democratic leaders in Bergen who have become increasingly impatient and unsatisfied with Kasparian’s leadership.
State Sen. Paul Sarlo (D-Wood-Ridge) made his feud with Kasparian over the appointment of his district’s Assembly seat public in December.
Weinberg continues: “The public relations aspect of our party going forward is a subject that should be discussed sooner rather than later to ensure our party’s victories this coming November. I anxiously await your reply. Loretta”
Kasparian’s response? Radio silence.
So the feisty Dem sent another email today.
“Mike, First of all, I am still waiting for a response to my email about convening the Executive Committee.
“Furthermore, none of us know the new address of the BCDO! I am outraged — to say this is a dereliction of your duties is an understatement! Loretta”
The BCDO quietly closed their headquarters after the November losses, and were making due with a smaller office in the same building until this week.
According to a source, they moved to a new building across the road, 6 Bridge Street, Hackensack.
BCDO Executive Director Chris Lee, first hearing of Weinberg’s email from PolitickerNJ, initially promised to call back: “I’m actually moving boxes right now.”
His official response from the BCDO on the emails: no comment.
