Maywood Mayor Tim Eustace (pictured) has the support of Bergen Democratic Party leaders to join the 38th District ticket of state Sen. Robert Gordon (D-Fair Lawn) and Assemblywoman Connie Wagner (D-Paramus), making him a virtual lock to win Sunday’s convention.
Talks today included the senator, Bergen County Democratic Committee Chairman Lou Stellato, and the assemblywoman.
Moments ago, the core inner players called Eustace to notify him thata he could count on their support. They also called runner-up Jeff Gardner, the chair of the Hawthorne Democratic Committee.
A one-term mayor and former four-term councilman, Eustace is an openly gay man.
