Mayor Massa sounds off on election
(Dec. 2, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:
I would like to thank the voters of North Arlington for allowing me the privilege of serving the community for another four years as mayor.
It is a humbling experience to receive such gratitude and support and I thank you all on behalf of myself and my family.
I would first like to thank the Democratic organization here in North Arlington including the Democratic Committee and Democratic Club for all of their hard work in this campaign. I could not have been successful if not for the party’s commitment to my candidacy as well as my running mates, Al Granell and Bob McClintock.
I would also like to thank Councilman Steve Tanelli as well as Councilman Mark Yampaglia for their hard work and confidence. It takes a collective effort to run a campaign as well as manage a municipality.
I would also like to acknowledge my opponent, former councilman Gary Burns. Gary has been involved in the community for decades. He has my respect and I look forward to working with him.
Congratulations are also in order to my colleagues Joe Bianchi and Rich Hughes. I’ve had the pleasure of serving with both members for the last three years and while we’ve had our differences, I believe we all have the same ultimate goal of providing the borough with the best possible services at the lowest possible costs.
I want to publicly acknowledge my wife Val for all of her help as well as my sons Rich and Steve, my daughter-in-law Emerita and my sister Donna.
