During a sit-down interview with Hudson County View last week, North Bergen Mayor Nick Sacco took a no holds barred approach to the May 12 municipal election, setting his crosshairs on Larry Wainsteinâ€™s â€œLower Taxes Time for Changeâ€ ticket.
Sacco, who became commissioner in 1985, admitted that this was one of the more vicious elections heâ€™s been involved with. Sacco also alleged that Wainsteinâ€™s camp has been promising senior citizens they would lower rent if elected.
Additionally, Sacco stated he wanted to make a statement on Election Day and hopes that the people of North Bergen recognize what his administration has accomplished in the past three decades.
He also referenced what he called a â€race-baiting” flyer from Wainstein, questioning the annual fee to use the township swimming pool.
The Lower Taxes Time for Change slate declined to immediately comment when reached by Hudson County View, but said they may respond later in the week.
