Jeyss Abreu, one of two men running for mayor Andre Sayegh’s old seat in the 6th Ward, has failed to include the required “paid for by” labels on his campaign materials.
Incumbent Andre Sayegh slammed his opponent Al Abdelaziz on Friday afternoon for allegedly affixing campaign flyers on utility poles.
Sometime in 2004, a teenage Al Abdelaziz crossed Main Street to the Valero Gas Station, when suddenly two police officers appeared on the scene, according to sources.
Challenger Al Abdelaziz issued fresh attacks against incumbent Andre Sayegh on Friday afternoon alleging the 6th Ward councilman has yet to rectify nine years of campaign finance filings and political signs devoid of ‘paid for by’ labels.
Three canvassing teams from 6th Ward city council hopeful Al Abdelaziz’s campaign handed out flyers and spoke to residents in the Lakeview and South Paterson sections on Saturday afternoon to get their candidate’s message out to voters.
Seeking a third term to represent the city’s 6th Ward on the municipal council, incumbent Andre Sayegh cited his record of opposing tax increases, closing down troublesome nightclubs, and taking steps to promote the growth of the Main Street and 21st Avenue commercial corridors.
Al Abdelaziz, who is running against Andre Sayegh in the 6th Ward, reported he raised $47,450 in campaign cash, according to his filings with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC).
