After 8 losses, Hopatcong Democrat trying again

By David Wildstein, April 01 2019 10:13 am

Democrat Mara Modes has filed for the Democratic nomination for Hopatcong mayor – her ninth bid for public office in the reliably Republican Sussex County borough of 15,147.

Modes ran locally as a Democrat in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014, as a Republican in the 2015 and 2016 primaries, and as an independent in 2018.

“Our town deserves leaders who will finally make our government work for regular people, not well-connected insiders” said Modes,  “For years, your government has been hiring the friends and family of councilmembers to important jobs, giving tax breaks to members of their clique, and ignoring our environment. This means higher property taxes and a lower quality of life for you and your family.”
