Strengths: The former Ward 2 Councilman and special police officer in neighboring Haledon has seized on the fact that the city lost 125 cops due to budget cuts by putting forth a detailed crime-combat plan.

Weaknesses: The former Council President twice lost his home ward to Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman, the current Ward 2 Councilman who backs rival mayoral candidate Andre Sayegh, councilman of the 6th Ward. Goow has the additional burdens of fellow Ward 2 resident former Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres and fellow Arab American Sayegh in the contest potentially disrupting his ability to build his base.
