Passaic Dems back incumbents: Duffy, Lepore, Berdnik

Passaic County Democrats picked incumbent freeholders Terry Duffy and Pat Lepore and sheriff Richard Berdnik to run on their organization line in the June primary.

Duffy and Lepore faces a challenge from Derya Taskin, a former deputy mayor of Paterson.

Taskin has said she would abide by the choice of the screening committee, which met today.

Paterson police director Jerry Speziale is mulling a primary challenge to Berdnik.  A former three-term sheriff, Speziale did not seek re-election in 2010 and was replaced by Berdnik.

Duffy and Lepore were first elected in 2004.

Republicans have not won seats on the Passaic County Board of Freeholders since 2009.
