Bergen County is fortunate in that the former Mayor of Paramus, James Tedesco III, is running for freeholder on November 5. He is leaving a tremendous legacy in Paramus.
The Generelli Sports Plaza, affordable housing near the major shopping mall in Paramus, and Bocci Court at the Senior Center, with new chairs, new rugs and up-to-date kitchen for the 21st century. The July 4th parade which Gov. Jon Corzine attended each year during his governorship, updating and repairing the band box at the library, with concerts every week during the month of August, the mayor’s luncheon at the Electric Union Hall, upgrading the Paramus golf course with champion competition, a kiddy golf course and putting green; upgrading Paramus pool for all Paramus residents, and ticket purchase possible for surrounding neighbors, computers available at the Senior Center and library for every one to use.
A few years ago there was a concerted effort to eliminate the blue laws. His famous words, “over my dead body,” put a quick stop to this silly and foolish attempt.
He was born and grew up in Bergen County, and I believe he is familiar with every street and legislator in Bergen County. He can bring his forward-looking determination, expertise, and experience to the Freeholders Board.
Respectfully, I urge my friends, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, to elect James Tedesco III to the Board of Bergen County Freeholders.
