NORTH ARLINGTON – About 50 enthusiastic Democrats heard speeches from Freeholder Steve Tanelli, Mayor Pete Massa and council candidates Mark Yampaglia and Dan Castro as the locals were cautiously optimistic they will prevail on November 4th. “They won’t debate or govern. They have no plan to speak of and they assume the election is in the bag,” observed Nick Antonicello, the borough’s Democratic Chairman. “We are polling and tracking. Our data shows a close, but very winnable race. Mayor Massa is winning the head-to-head with Bianchi and Dan Pronti is hardly the popular councilman he may think he is,” offered Antonicello who believes Democrats are on the right side of the issues, including redevelopment. “We have a mayoral candidate in Bianchi who has raised property taxes four times. He gave away “air rights” as a planning board member. He enthusiastically supported EnCap. He opposed the renovation of the Public Library. He wants to put lights on a field that will disrupt the quality...

Dear Editor:   I would like to see the North Arlington Republicans debate the North Arlington Democrats. The Democrats have challenged the Republicans to debate the issues, and they have refused.   Issues in North Arlington are becoming very serious. The voters need to know what each party's plans are if elected.   D.F. Sarpa North Arlington

A modest sized district, North Arlington, like other districts around the state, will be transitioning to the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) standardized testing, Common Core curriculum, and the new educator evaluation system.   The district has set the goal for this year of increasing its Advanced Placement offerings and PSAT participation at the high school. Another goal expressed by the board of education is an attempt to bring more special education students back from out-of-district placements.   North Arlington recently completed a referendum-funded renovation at Rip Collins Field.

Residents along Halsey and Moore streets in North Arlington can expect to see new curbs, storm drains and repaved streets in 2015. The project is being partially funded by a federal grant under the community Development Block Grant program.   The project will also include installation of ramps at the corners that are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) selective replacement of sidewalks and replacement of driveway aprons. The project is in the design phase and will be completed in the spring.   Also on the borough's infrastructure agenda is a project on Eagle Street from River Street to Riverview Avenue that will include upgrading the storm sewer inlets, installation of curbs and ramps for handicapped as well as resurfacing the roadway and replacement of driveway aprons and selected sections of sidewalks. This project too is in the design phase. The cost of the project is being partially offset by a $149,000 grant. Read More

WRITE-IN REPUBLICAN BAEZ JOINS RACE FOR MAYOR!

Anthony Baez, North Arlington, GOP Candidate, Mayor, Joe Bianchi,

Does the new GOP mayoral candidate possess the leadership to step up to the "debate plate" and eclipse Bianchi?   When North Arlington residents go to the polls Nov. 4, they can choose one of three candidates for mayor but they’ll find only two on the ballot.   Mayor Peter...


Weekly Poll

If the election were held today, do you vote Councilman Yampaglia & Castro the Democrats, or Councilman Pronti & Cruz the GOP?

Mayor Pete Massa, North Arlington
Between 2010 and 2013 Joe Bianchi had three years to create a redevelopment plan for North Arlington.   Republicans were in control and they paid tens of thousands for a 52-page plan that for the most part is unworkable, ineffective and dormant.  Forwarded to the Planning Board, Bianchi and the Republicans claimed this plan would yield "clean industrial ratables, jobs for local residents and income for the borough."  Four years later anjd still gathering dust, the Bianchi plan has failed.  Under Republicans there is no redevelopment progress.  None.  The promise of wholesale establishments, data centers, research laboratories, flex space, self storage facilities, commercial recreation and a film studio are nothing but "pie-in-the-sky" rhetoric that lacks serious interest or inquiry!  More importantly, candidate Bianchi and his woefully inexperienced running-mates Pronti and Cruz have no redevelopment credentials or skill set.  Mayor Pete Massa, who stopped the politically inspired EnCap project that was embraced by candidate Bianchi wants to negotiate directly with private developers and build a real plan that is reasonable and workable.  To implement a new direction and plan, voters need to give Mayor Massa his team so that GOP mismanagement of the redevelopment process will cease once and for all!  Joe Bianchi served nearly three decades as a planning board member and what plan has he developed?  Giving away "air rights" to a local business?  Supporting EnCap?  Having served three years in the majority, Bianchi supported a plan that does not work while simultaneously raising property taxes three times!  North Arlington needs an effective leader like Mayor Massa without the constraints of GOP bickering and attacks.  As a school board member Massa led from the head of the line and delivered on the transformation of the Wilson elementary school into the Middle School we have today!  Bianchi opposed that successful project and referendum.  As mayor, Pete Massa worked...
