Woodland Park Democrats have endorsed Keith Kazmark for re-election to a fourth term on Tuesday night.
“I say it frequently, but serving as Mayor is without question the highest professional honor of my life,” Kazmark said. “Each day when I wake up, I set a goal of doing at least one positive thing that day for our community. Together, we have made Woodland Park one of the most competent and effective local governments in New Jersey.”
Kazmark pointed to a new turf field as Zaccaria Park, playground improvements at Grimes Park, road resurfacing and the extension of the McBride Avenue streetscape project..
“We see great progress, while keeping costs under control and last year delivered a combined $150 tax reduction to the average homeowner,” he said.
After serving as a councilman, Kazmark ran for mayor in 2011 after incumbent Pasquale Lepore declined to seek a fifth term. He defeated independent Dominick DiDomenico by a 54%-34% margin, with Republican Patrick Murray received 12%.
He was re-elected in 2014 with 98.6% of the vote and 2017 with 99.2%.
