Low-cash race in Elmwood Park

No candidates, committees filing pre-primary forms

All six candidates seeking council seats and all three mayoral candidates in Elmwood Park submitted forms saying they did not intend to spend more than $5,000 on their bids, according to filings with the Election Law Enforcement Commission.

Two slates of Republican candidates are seeking to fill the seat left vacant by the resignation of now-former Mayor Francesco Caramagna and his Council running mates, Joseph Dombrowski and Daniel Golabek.

Wallace Nowosielecki, Carl Roberts and Robert Colletti are running on one slate, with the latter as their mayoral candidate.

The other slate is made up of mayoral candidate Magdalena Giandomenico and council candidates Thomas Desiervo and Thomas Conboy.

All three slates are running with joint committees, all three of which filed forms saying they did not intend to spend more than $14,000 on the race.

Caramagna resigned last month after being charged with election tampering. The municipal Democratic party, which Caramagna chairs, has put up three names — Caramagna’s son-in-law Riccardo Patane, Caramagna’s wife Vittoria and 26-year-old teacher Francesco Fasolo — to fill his seat on the ballot.

Sources have told the New Jersey Globe that Vittoria Caramagna is the strong favorite to get the seat.

Caramagna is still on the ballot but is expected to drop out of the race. The municipal organization he leads will then pick a replacement candidate.
