On November 5th we will all be making some very important decisions. On Tuesday I urge you and your family to vote and additionally make your influence known as a leader and a respected member of your community. Use your influence to encourage your fellow firefighters and neighbors to go to the polls.
At the top of the ballot are this year’s governors’ and senatorial races that are pivotal to our state and country’s future. Near the bottom of the ballot are the local choices that always have significant impact on you and your department’s ability to continually provide critical lifesaving fire protection in our communities.
In your rush to the polls remember our “friends in the middle” and cast your support for Maura DeNicola for another term as a member of the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
In 2010, doing a presentation about the counties fire service to the Northwest Bergen Mayors Association was the first time I meet her. The sharpest questions came from then Mayor Maura DeNicola, it was obvious this was someone who knew a thing or two about us. Maura is many things, a community leader, a wife, mother of four, sister of an NYPD Lieutenant. As if politics isn’t enough, one of her sons is serving our country as a Lieutenant in the US Navy and another son serves his community as a firefighter in Franklin Lakes.
Maura DeNicola is a friend of the fire service, and the emergency services at large. Most of you have already meet her, she is the woman standing at the front, whether it’s a graduation, parades, funerals or a tough vote, she is out front. She can and has absolutely and positively intercede in our favor in a variety of matters both in Bergen County and beyond. We need to use the power of the ballot box and the power of our personal influence for those that have and will continue to stand to help us when and where we need it. Maura DeNicola will continue to be an asset to the people of Bergen County and can be relied upon to make sound decisions in support of the fire service in Bergen County.
Brothers and sisters stay safe and on Election Day get to the polls and vote!
