Schepisi easily wins LD39 GOP contest

River Vale attorney Holly Schepisi Monday night easily won her party’s nomination for the 39th District Assembly seat to be vacated by retiring Assemblywoman Charlotte Vandervalk.

In a three-way contest with businessman Michael Cino and Washington Twp. Council President Fred Goetz, 150 people voted and Schepisi received 90% of the vote, according to Bergen County Republican Organization Chairman Bob Yudin.

“She brings political experience,” Yudin said of the daughter of a former county party chairman. “She is a mother, she is an attorney and she and her family have been involved in Bergen politics for decades. She will be an outstanding assemblyperson and we continue having female representation. She brings nothing but pluses.”
