Paterson resident urges voters to support Democrats in Nov. race

I am proud to support Freeholders Assad Akhter, John Bartlett and Freeholder Director Sandi Lazzara for reelection. In addition, I am also proud to endorse Danielle Ireland-Imhof for County Clerk.

Over the course of the last six months, I have seen their commitment first hand to be accessible not only to the residents of Paterson but also throughout the county. They bring a level of diversity that we can all be proud of.

Their tenure on the Freeholder board has bought about two years of no tax increases*. Our county bond rating is one of the best in the state. That is something we can all applaud. Also, their prompt willingness to respond to constituent concerns reminds us why we are in public service.

Ms. Imhof is a certified clerk. She brings about years of experience in that role. She’s eager to help the residents of this county on day one, if elected.

Please come out and Vote Row B on Nov. 6th.

Paterson Planning Board member
