Rep. Josh Gottheimer and Assemblyman Chris Tully campaigned for a Bergenfield councilman last week.
“I am proud to support Arvin Amatorio for Mayor because he is committed to working collaboratively to improve services for all residents of Bergenfield. Residents know he is a leader of substance who collaborates to get things done,” Gottheimer said. “Between his leadership as Finance Committee Chairman, where he has delivered two consecutive budgets with zero percent municipal tax increases, to sponsoring the annual Bergenfield health fair, Arvin has shown he is the best man to lead Bergenfield forward.”
Amatorio is running to oust Republican mayor Norman Schmelz.
Tully sat on the Bergenfield council for eight years before moving up the state legislature last year.
“Having served on the Bergenfield Council with Arvin for over three years, I know that he is always looking for responsible ways to expand borough services while saving taxpayers money,” Tully said. “Arvin has delivered fiscally responsible budgets that upgraded the borough’s credit rating with no tax increase on residents. He has led the way on crucial shared services agreements that are already saving taxpayer dollars here in Bergenfield, and nobody is more aggressive than Arvin at working with partners to identify avenues for state and federal grants.”
