Voss, Hache win Bergen Democratic convention

By David Wildstein, March 17 2020 6:25 pm

Incumbent Joan Voss and Ridgewood mayor Ramon Hache secured party support in their bids for Bergen County freeholder at an online convention of county committee members.

Voss was the top vote-getter with 917 votes.  Hache defeated former Teaneck school board member Shahanaz Arjumand by a vote of 824 to 226.

Hache and Arjumand were seeking the seat of David Ganz, who is not seeking re-election to a seventh term on the Bergen County Board of Freeholders.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, county chairman Paul Juliano cancelled a convention scheduled for last week and instead held the contest online.

The result was an enormous turnout by county committee.
