The (Bergen) Record and the Herald News have endorsed Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik for re-election to a fourth term.
Berdik’s challenger is Republican Darren Woolridge, a former sheriff’s officer.
The Record wrote just one story on the race for Passaic sheriff, on October 19.
“Whether Berdnik has been as ‘visible’ as he needs to be is a fair question. What does not seem in question, though, is whether he has provided the steady sense of leadership that county residents deserve. We see no need to make a change in this office.” the editorial said.
