A few weeks ago, the “Moving Secaucus Forward” website was launched to highlight the political achievements of Mayor Michael Gonnelli and the Town Council.
The group – formerly known under the motto “Take Back Secaucus” – also includes Town Council members John Gerbasio, Robert Costantino, James Clancy, Susan Pirro, Mark Dehnert and William McKeever. The mayor as well as Gerbasio, Costantino, Dehnert and McKeever are up for re-election in November.
While the members of the “Moving Secaucus Forward” platform are independents, recent media reports have indicated that the Democratic Party may be mobilizing some challengers to the ticket.
The website highlights the successes of the current administration, including extensive updates to the town parks, upgraded flood control, televised council meetings and the end of the Meadowlands Tax Sharing agreement.
Candidates running as Democrats or Republicans will run in the state primaries on June 6 while Independents can wait until the general election on November 7.
