First of all, Congratulations.

But, how will he gt anything done? He'll have to give into the mayor somewhat. Will he not go to redevelopment opening ceremonies b/c he's so against it? will he now get his aprtments? will he blend in enough to not hurt the town. How will he diplomatically represent his differences? and finally, what town job does he come up with?

McDonough re-elected in Harrison, one council race too close to call

HARRISON — Mayor Raymond J. McDonough was re-elected tonight and his ticket won three out of four town council seats.

The Second Ward seat is too close to call, with incumbent Arthur Pettigrew behind by 12 votes to Steven McCormick, with 28 absentees ballots and a slew of provisional ballots not yet counted.

McDonough, the Democratic incumbent who has held his post for the past 11 years, defeated challenger Anselmo Millan 1,489 votes to 933.

“I feel great,” McDonough said. “I think the voters realized that I’m sincere and dedicated to the town. I think they realize that I put the town ahead of everything.”

A former Harrison councilman and longtime rival of the mayor, Millan and his ticket campaigned largely on the charges that plans to redevelop properties along the Passaic River would overcrowd schools and roads and severely tax municipal services.

Several projects are in the works to transform a largely industrial 275-acre tract into upscale housing, retail and corporate space, parking facilities and a Major League soccer stadium.

A team of independent Democrats backed by Millan was also defeated at the polls.

In the First Ward political newcomer Jesus Huarana, running on the McDonough ticket, defeated Maria Camano 282 to 201.

McCormick was ahead of Pettigrew 264 to 252 and James Doran defeated Millan-backed candidates and Joseph Wood 400 to 192 in the Fourth Ward.

In the Third Ward Laurence Bennett, who ran unopposed on the McDonough ticket, garnered 570 votes.

All seats in Harrison carry four-year terms.

His most important function will be that of "watchdog". The idea is to keep the Zombies honest.

Regarding his apartments, if he is confirmed the winner, the State of New Jersey and not the Town's Planning or Zoning Board will have to decide. The town's Boards deciding would be a conflict of interest. With the State he'll be lucky if he gets all the parking waived that the Planning Board granted! Also, they will have to investigate the Cert. of occupancy not being issued for the apartment he has lived in for the last 13 or so years! So Stevie Boy may have shot himself in the foot by winning, he may actually NOT GET HIS WAY. i'M GLAD i DON'T LIVE IN HIS WARD, AS HE IS ONLY OUT FOR HIMSELF!

Let us not count on Stevie Boy yet. There is still absentee ballots to be counted.

Guest Let's all hope

Let's all hope that Steve doesn't give into the town officials when they promise him his apartments. Let's hope he continues his fight for those apartments and gets them legally!!!

it's gotta S**K knowing that most of the people in town hate you. I am sure he will get over it when he get's what he want's.

Watch how fast his loft apartment's get done, and his ties with Millan are done.

well now larry and steve won their seats as council members, do they lose their seats as comissioners for the gardens? i think that whole board should be wiped out. a NEW,NO interest group SHOULD be PLACED. besides these two men, the other members have a invested opportunity to continue SUCKING DRY this town. look at that sHORE lady who rips off the town weekdays then weekends she gone. holding office and serving as a haven to criminals. where are the rules for her? That grandSON is back and living there, why is he allowed to stay? does she have a few snapped photos hidden in the closet? yesterday with her smug remarks at the polls, why wasn't she thrown out? STEVE, THIS IS THE STUFF THAT NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH FIRST!

MIKE RODGERS, WHY AREN'T YOU DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THIS??????? YOU'VE THROWN OUT ONE THIRD OF THE TENANTS ALREADY WHO YOU DOOM TROUBLE, WHY NOT HER????????????

ARE YOU 'SURE' ABOUT THAT? AS THE MAYOR KEPT SAYING DURING THE ELECTION, 'LARRY WANTED TO BE A COUNCILMAN FROM THE DAY HE WAS BORN". he'll be hanging his tongue out to 'please' the mayor!

but can they get away with giving to to him 'under the table', in order to try to pull him over to their side, like they did 'successfully' with dan kelly??
