Support the Bergenfield Team of Kornbluth and Deauna

I am writing you today to express my enthusiastic support for the Democratic team of Councilwoman Ora Kornbluth and Buddy Deauna in this year’s Council Election on November 8. It has been a great privilege working with Councilwoman Kornbluth. Her strong record and tireless dedication to our community, specifically on the borough Finance and Police Committees, merit re-election. Councilwoman Kornbluth serves as Chair of the Bergenfield Police Committee where I have seen first-hand her commitment to keeping Bergenfield a safe place to live and raise a family. Our success has been evident by the numerous awards and publications that consistently recognize Bergenfield as one of the safest communities in New Jersey. Buddy Deauna has been an institution in Bergenfield for over two decades. He has been involved in countless local community and church activities, served on our Zoning Board since 1997, and operated a successful business in Bergenfield’s downtown. He will have no learning curve and has the experience and knowledge to be an effective member of the Bergenfield Council immediately.

While serving with Ora Kornbluth on Bergenfield’s Finance Committee, the Democratic Council saw a substantial decrease in debt and Moody’s even upgraded Bergenfield’s Municipal Bond Rating, citing our “improved financial position” and “conservative budgeting practices.” We have now instituted a responsible long-term plan to reallocate our debt savings toward infrastructure improvements and have 16 road projects scheduled to be completed in 2016 alone. Even Republican Mayor Norman Schmelz has said Ora Kornbluth and the Finance Committee have done a great job with Bergenfield’s finances. While I understand his Republican Party politics dictated his endorsement of the local Republican candidates, it is important to remind voters that he has also publicly recognized the good work of the Democratic Council and of the Bergenfield Finance Committee. On November 8, please vote for the Democratic Team of Ora Kornbluth and Buddy Deauna so that we can continue the responsible record of good government on the Bergenfield Council.
