Letter to the Editor: Rooney, Jepsen Care About Issues That Matter Most

Send your letters to Joseph.Gerace@patch.com

Dear Editor: 

It will be my pleasure on November 6th to cast my vote to re-elect Kevin Rooney and elect Haakon Jepsen for Township Committee. The Rooney-Jepsen team cares about the issues that matter most to our community.

Over the past three years as a member of the Wyckoff Township Committee, Kevin’s devotion and care for all Wyckoff residents shined brightly. As our mayor in 2011 he made the hard decisions on what was best for the entire community.

This year as the finance committee chairman, he was recognized by his peers on the Township Committee for his forward out of the box thinking. The 2012 municipal budget [growth] of less than 1 percent was recognized by Mayor Chris DePhillips as lowest in Northwest Bergen and Committeeman Brian Scanlan honored Kevin by stating, “You made lemonade out of lemons.”

Kevin’s fiscal prudency and leadership skills are truly a required asset on the Township Committee. The Rooney-Jepsen team will bring the balanced business like approach best represented for all of Wyckoff.

Maintaining the character and small town charm of Wyckoff, while recognizing that property values need to remain high is part of their focus. They understand the need to keep our municipal tax low, our children and residents safe, and reduce traffic congestion.

On November 6th, please cast your vote for the Rooney-Jepsen Team. 

Chela Bruno

Ah, first off I see no reason to attempt some defense, however, you all seem to have your facts WRONG and are way too small to admit it. Yes, John and I were friends in grammer school. However in HS we were not. I spent my own time with the Lawshe/Schmidlin group. My contact with the WPD at the time was with Dick Canova, Ray Whitford and Jay McCormick busting me a few times for various activities, mostly involving some rebuilt cars. However think what you will. It is a cruse one must have being freinds with someone in grammer school. LOL, of course it is interesting that when someone cannot state facts they come up with som 40 year old confusion as an attack on a person, rather than the subject. Enough said on my own part, on this matter.

Just got off the phone with "D", one of the people you helped "pinch." I am only using one initial so you might have a hard time going back through your files, probably bronzed, to identify who it is. YOU YOU YOU!!! were the one who was the source of the arrest which, by the way, made it impossible to get in to the college of choice. Nice way to ruin someone's career before it gets off the ground! As for you and Milligan being friends, I did not say in grammer school, moron; I said HIGH SCHOOL!!!!! Sorry if you findf the word "HIGH" offensive in any context. Actually, I'm not sorry, Judas!! I'm sure the fireworks thing dealt with grammer school rather than high school; after all, elementary students are able to get fireworks much more easily than a high schooler! By the way (which could be BTW, like your asiinine LOL), a simple FOI request could put this whole issue to rest. Does it drive you absolutely insane that there is now MEDICAL MARIJUANA? Imagine that!! Low-life bottom feeders, snitches and plain old RATS like you will have a harder time earning a few extra dollars at the expense of others. LOL AH!!!! Of course you want to drop it now Mary!! Getting a little too hot in the kitchen????

Whatever you say Ed. File your FOI, please. I think you will find you have been very badly mistaken. When that occurs I trust you will be man enough to offer an apology.

Wyckoff Patch is your forum, it's your community, it's your place to share ideas and opinions and discussion — so I'm not a big fan of diluting your discussion or moderating the things you say. However, full disclosure, I'm getting complaints regarding some of the comments here. Please just be mindful that this is a public forum and the people here — and the people reading — are your neighbors. Thanks, y'all.

Joseph, no problem. Please make sure that Unglert, who started it with his character assasination of Ms. Avia and denigration of her profession will cease and desist from further similar actions against people who are exercising their right to run for office without having to be subjected to Nixion-like tactics.
