Page 4 THE VILLADOM TIMES III • October 28, 2009 Area On Nov. 3, voters will select their representatives to the local governing bodies. This year, Waldwick residents will have a choice between the Republican slate, council incumbents Anita Bozzo and Charles Farricker, and the Democratic team of Franklin Jaegge and John Patrick Hunter. Bozzo, a two-term councilwoman and chair of the Finance Committee, has been a Waldwick resident since 1990. Her activities have included service as: treasurer at Rainbow Corners Nursery School, group facilitator for the mother/infant classes at the Red Cross in Ridgewood, member of the Waldwick Board of Education’s Citizens’ Advisory Committee, coordinator of the Learning to Look program at Traphagan School, vice president of the Waldwick Junior School PSO, teacher for confirmation CCD classes at Saint Luke’s Church, and president of the Waldwick Newcomers Club. The councilwoman is a reading teacher in Paterson. Prior to that, she worked in the financial services industry for 20 years for major brokerage and insurance companies. She graduated magna cum laude from Manhattan College in The Bronx, and obtained her master’s in reading from William Paterson University. Waldwick voters have choice on November 3 “Our community will be facing many challenges over the next few years, and I believe that Chuck Farricker and I are wellprepared to face them,” Bozzo said in a prepared statement. “The most challenging is the fact that state aid to our municipality has been declining at a steady rate, and we must assume that it will continue to do so. Yet, our council has the important task maintaining our quality of life and, at the same time, keeping tax increases at a minimum. In the years to come, we will have to make some hard choices. Waldwick needs and deserves an experienced, stable council that works together well to make intelligent choices for our community.” Bozzo’s husband Bob owns the Packaging Depot in Waldwick. They have two adult sons, Robert and Joseph, both of whom are graduates of Waldwick High School. Farricker moved to Waldwick in 1985. He has served on the council since 2006. He is currently the council’s liaison to the board of education and serves as chairman of the Recreation and Health Committee. He is a member of Saint Luke’s parish and served as a mentor to the youth group. He serves on the board of directors of the WBA, and is a member of the Knights of Columbus, where he is on the Golf and Scholarship committees. Farricker is a member of the VFW and the American Legion. He has coached recreation softball and soccer, and was a baseball umpire for over 25 years. He has also been a basketball referee for over 30 years. He is a senior underwriter at Western World Insurance Company in Franklin Lakes. He holds a degree in economics and business administration from William Paterson. From 1970 to 1972, he served in the U.S. Army, where he attained the rank of sergeant. Hunter, 30, is a life-long resident of Waldwick. He graduated from Waldwick High School in 1997. He received a BS in marketing from Ramapo College 2001 and an MBA in finance from Ramapo College 2005. He has been a member of the Waldwick Zoning Board since 2008.

Jaegge has resided in Waldwick for 49 years, and has served on the Waldwick Fire Department for 47 of those years, including three terms as chief. In 1971, he was instrumental in organizing the Junior Fire Brigade. Jaegge has also served as Waldwick’s civil defense disaster coordinator. He served five years on the Waldwick Planning Board, and another six years on the zoning board, where he is currently a member. Jaegge, whose wife Paula is Waldwick’s borough clerk, has three daughters and five grandchildren. Now retired, Jaegge was general traffic manager for GEC Marconi for 35 years. In a joint statement, Hunter and Jaegge said: “By now you have probably seen our van, encountered a Hunter/Jaegge lawn sign or two, and maybe even gotten a glimpse of our campaign headquarters on West Prospect. Now you might be wondering who are these people and why are they working so hard to get our attention? The answer is simple: We are the change Waldwick needs and we are working so hard because we are determined to win this election. We are tired of more of the same old thing for Waldwick and we want to make a difference. “If elected, we would like to purpose an enforceable loitering ordinance to help keep the streets of Waldwick safe. We would also like to purpose a mandatory semi annual inspection for all multifamily dwellings to ensure that the people who are registered to live in the homes are the only (continued on page 8) ����������� Hair Care Candidates seek endorsement The following council candidates are running unopposed for election to the local governing bodies. Allendale Incumbents Jim Strauch and Member Elizabeth White, both Republicans, are seeking new terms on the Allendale Borough Council. Strauch, former assistant marsh warden and former chairman of the Allendale Board of Adjustment, was elected to the council six years ago. The previous year, Strauch had run a write-in campaign and garnered more that 1,000 votes on a platform of saving as many trees as possible at Crestwood Park. While he was not elected at that time, his write-in campaign was seen as having swung the seated council to a tougher stance against sports groups that wanted maximum play space and toward a position that provided additional field space, but minimized tree-cutting.
