Schmelz launching Bergen Executive campaign on Sunday

By The Staff

Bergenfield Mayor Norman Schmelz will formally launch his anticipated run against incumbent Bergen County Executive James Tedesco on Sunday March 4th.

Bergen Republicans haven’t held the executive position since Tedesco, a former Paramus Mayor, defeated Kathleen Donovan back in 2014. The party’s slide in county-wide elections has accelerated ever since with Republicans presently shut-out from county government.

Schmelz’s roll out will take place at 4:30 p.m. at his mother’s residence on Bergenfield’s Ralph Street.
