Santos announces new ticket in Kearny

By David Wildstein, April 04 2022 5:47 pm

Two incumbents and two newcomers will seek seats on the Kearny Town Council with the support of Mayor Alberto Santos.

Santos announced today that 1st Ward Councilman Albino Cardoso and 4th Ward Councilwoman Susan McCurrie will not seek re-election.

Cardoso’s replacement is George Zapata, the vice president of the Kearny Board of Education and a utilities authority commissioner.   Stathis Theodoropoulos, a businessman who serves on the New Jersey Hellenic Heritage Commission, is running to succeed McCurrie.

“Albino and Susan were instrumental to our record of achievement. They will remain involved in local government but in less active roles,” Santos said.  “They will also assist George Zapata and Stathis Theodoropoulos in their runs for office to ensure residents continue to have effective representation at Town Hall.”

Santana has been a councilman since 2017 and Eckel, a public school teacher in Fair Lawn, has been on the council since 2005.
