Paramus NJ, Frank Pallotta who is currently running for Congress in the 5th District  had this to say about the Fireplace closure in Paramus ,”These unfortunate scenes are becoming far too common in New Jersey. Another iconic business shutters its doors for good, while Rep Josh Gottheimer and Governor Phil Murphy remain silent on every issue affecting their ability to remain open and operate profitably. It should surprise no one that nearly a dozen concerned Republican leaders in the area stopped by to offer support, while in Democrat-controlled Bergen County, not one Democrat showed their face. Thank you Jack Ciattarelli for taking the time to speak to hundreds of patrons, to Jim Arakelian for putting all this together, and to all the candidates who stopped by.”

With nearly every provisional vote counted across all four counties in New Jersey’s 5th Congressional District, it is time to turn the page on the 2020 election cycle and look ahead.
