Hackensack, NJ,in a statement yesterday CD5 GOP Candidate John McCannn said ,” Sheriff Michael Saudino must resign immediately. These comments are offensive and hurtful. I am saddened for the good men and women in law enforcement in Bergen County who do an outstanding job protecting us.

Just a few short weeks ago, Josh Gottheimer stood shoulder to shoulder with Sheriff Saudino, enjoying his endorsement. Now the question is will Congressman Gottheimer renounce Saudino’s endorsement? I encourage him to do that and not play politics by saying one thing and doing another.”

Ridgewood NJ,  Progress continues on the installation of Positive Train Control (PTC) equipment on NJ TRANSIT’s rail fleet to meet federal year-end milestones, requiring NJ TRANSIT to make a final set of rail service adjustments.
