Three to Have Dems Party Organization Support for Freeholder on Thursday

amorosoBergen Democrats will consider four candidates for three freeholder seats at their convention scheduled for this Thursday.

The party organization is circulating a letter of support – already signed by 50 municipal chairs – for three of the four candidates.

They are Mary Amoroso (pictured), a Mahwah Councilwoman and former Bergen Record Trenton Bureau Chief (and the wife of TV personality James McQueeny); Germaine Ortiz of Emerson, a trustee at Bergen County Community College; and incumbent Freeholder Tom Sullivan, who last year ran for Jim Tedesco’s vacant seat to fill an unexpired term and now is running for the full, three-year term.

A fourth candidate, Tenafly Councilman Mark Zinna, will not have the support of the 50 municipal chairs.

The other countywide candidates this year – Surrogate Michael Dressler, Clerk John Hogan, and Sheriff Michael Saudino – are all running unopposed in the Democratic Pre-Primary.
