North Bergen Police Sgt. Henry Marrero spoke with Hudson County View about his candidacy for the May 12 municipal election, where he’s seeking office to “eliminate career politicians,” do away with township vehicles and create more job, among several other ideas.
Marrero spoke about a variety of topics, including why he decided to seek office again after being soundly defeated by District 8 Freeholder Anthony Vainieri in last year’s June 3rd Democratic primary election.
Despite previous rumors that he would replace North Bergen Department of Public Works Commissioner Frank Gargiulo on Mayor Nick Sacco’s ticket, or be a surprise candidate on challenger Larry Wainstein’s slate, Marrero told Hudson County View that he never planned on running with anyone but himself in this election.
In the middle of the grudge match between Sacco and Wainstein, Marrero said he plans on remaining positive and focusing on tangible issues for North Bergen residents.
I also asked Marrero why he asked to conduct the interview near the construction site at James J. Braddock Park.
Finally, Marrero ended by saying the state Attorney General’s raid on the North Bergen Department of Parks and Recreation one week ago was “embarrassing”.
