Tap into Ridgewood was created at the end of March 2021. Jason DeAlessi (aka “Sleek Media, LLC) is the franchise owner (and up until a few days ago, he was the editor of record. . . still trying to figure out who is his replacement (or, realistically, not)). Every single piece they write bashes the anti-Arohnshon crowd, guts Susan Knudsen, supports JOLTS.
Jason DeAlessi also owns Fuerza Strategy Group. He was Paul Vagianos’ campaign manager the last time Paul ran for office. Jason and Fuerza Strategy Group employ Donna Abene, Treasurer of the “Paul Vagianos for Village Counsel Campaign.” Donna’s address, in her PV campaign capacity, is Fuerza Strategy. Donna is the Vice-Chair at Democratic Legislative District 39 and Democratic Organization of Bergen County. According to her Linked-In page she has “served as Campaign Manager, Deputy Campaign Manager, and Treasurer on many local and state races.” Add Paul Vagianos campaign to the list.
So Tap into Ridgewood is directly involved in Paul Vagianos’ campaign, there is no denying this. It’s all available on Google if anyone wants to verify this information. Very easy.
Jason DeAlessi is also on the Board of Directors of the LWV. And, yes, that is who hosted the debate where they tossed softball questions at Paul and tough, biased questions at Ms. Hooban. Ms. Hooban was decidedly disadvantaged in the questioning.
A review of Pauls’s contributors will demonstrate outside money coming from the Bergen County Democratic operatives. Note, we have a non-partisan form of government in Ridgewood and there is no place for outside money. Also note, Hooban is a Democrat and has received no support.
Finally, PAUL IS NOT A LAWYER. Paul hasn’t practiced law since the early 1990s. He doesn’t have a law license anymore. And yes, it’s odd that his “law business” profile” says he works for the Law Offices of Pam Perron. I would expect more of Pam.
