Wyckoff Police: Shoplifters Charged With Robbery…

Letter to the Editor: Rooney, Jepsen Care for Wyckoff

Send your letters to Joseph.Gerace@patch.com

Dear Editor,

It would be my honor to write a letter of support to re-elect Kevin Rooney and elect Haakon Jepsen for Township Committee on November 6th. This Rooney-Jepsen team is compassionate about doing what is best for the citizens of Wyckoff. I personally know Kevin and his family and know their moral values and devotion to the town of Wyckoff.

Throughout the past 3 years of Kevin being on the Township Committee, I have seen drastic improvements in the town we all love.  Kevin has kept the town of Wyckoff a place where mothers like me want to raise their children. I have full trust in him that he will do the same if re-elected. Kevin is dedicated to keeping the small town charm of Wyckoff and keeping property taxes low, which is the reason I moved to this beautiful town.

His time and commitment for the town is truly one to take note of. Last year during his term as Mayor, there were major storms that hit Wyckoff. Kevin and his wife Hayley, were out helping the citizens any way they could.  He is a true leader, who does not stop until the job is complete. They both are very hard working people who will keep running Wyckoff the right way.

When casting your vote on November 6th, please cast your vote for the Rooney-Jepsen team.

Karen LaCorte

@Ed-my "bias" is likely with you on the issues and the candidates, for the record. I quickly scanned the other thread's comments this morning as I was tied up all weekend. Mr Unglert needs a refresher on good manners, but he received some potshots that were uncalled for, too. Lets stay on topic, Wyckoff Patch commenters do a good job of (eventually) policing the crazies (in fairness to Ed, maybe not in a timely manner). Cheers all, GXR

I have a crazy idea - let's put in Rooney and Avia and forget about Jepsen. No one seems to know anything about him any way! The reason I say that is no one answers me when I inquire about Jepsen!! Every letter, etc., is about Rooney!!! OK - I'm done with all of this. We'll just see the outcome in November! Go AVIA!!

@ Linda C: He is, by all accounts, a very nice guy. His tangible qualifications (aside from the subjective stuff -- enthusiasm, good attitude, energy, yatta yatta) -- are: Community wise - "Haakon currently serves on the Zoning Board of Adjustment as 1st Alternate. He is also an active parishioner at Saint Elizabeth's Church where he is co-director of the 20th Annual Men's Cornerstone Program." Work- "Haakon is a Senior Analyst for Deutsche Bank's Global Technology Engineering division, thriving in that fast-paced and highly dynamic business environment."

Just a little more info about Haakon: Born in Washington, D.C., and raised in Maryland. His father is a former D.C. police officer who now maintains a legal practice serving law enforcement. His mother recently retired from a distinguished 26-year career as a Maryland public school teacher. This background has given Haakon a deep appreciation for the impact of public service. Haakon is a community-oriented husband and father, who will be a fresh force in resolving township issues. He will bring new ideas and enthusiasm to the Township Committee, and provide open-minded and dedicated service. Haakon earned a Bachelor of Arts from Towson University and a Master of Fine Arts from the Catholic University of America. He is an arts and design enthusiast as well as an occasional editorial cartoonist for the Wyckoff Patch. He prides himself on being the oldest student at Wyckoff's Tae Kwon Do school where he earned his green belt earlier this year.

Andrea - Thanks for the info; although vague on what fresh ideas he will bring, you did supply some much needed background (as well as Gary R.) on Mr. Jepsen.
