Wainstein announces running mates in North Bergen

By David Wildstein, March 05 2023 11:35 pm

In his bid to oust eight-term North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco and his team, challenger Larry Wainstein has announced four running mates to join him on his slate in the May 9 non-partisan municipal election.

Lucy Rodriguez, Tony Parrales, Alcides Siri, and Franklin Fabre will join Wainstein, who is challenging Sacco for a third time.  

“Our team will always put North Bergen first and focus on the issues that are important to our community,” said Wainstein.  “We look forward to a spirit campaign and to discussing our plan to help make North Bergen an even better place to live and raise a family.

A businessman whose parents emigrated from South America, Wainstein is seeking to become the first Hispanic mayor of North Bergen. 

All four of Wainstein’s running mates are political newcomers. 

Rodriguez is a social worker for Catholic Charities, Parrales is a shop steward for Teamsters Local 560, Siri is a mechanic for Ford Motor Company, and Fabre is a small business owner.

In North Bergen, the five winners will choose a mayor.  Sacco has held the post since 1989.
