Committee Candidate Hits Wyckoff Streets

Eileen Avia took to Franklin Avenue Saturday to meet and greet potential voters

Committee Candidate Eileen Avia stood at the busy corner of Franklin and Everett avenues in downtown Wyckoff Saturday morning for a "Meet the Moms" handshaking opportunity.

The Wyckoff Public School teacher is running for one of the two committee seats available in this year's election.

She's vying for votes against incumbent committeeman and past-Mayor Kevin Rooney, as well as political newcomer Haakon Jepsen.

Current Mayor Chris DePhillips will not be seeking re-election this year.

If elected by voters this November, Avia would be the only woman on the 2013 committee and one of two registered Democrats — beside Brian Scanlan.

Look for more on this year's local elections soon.
