HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - The election for the Hasbrouck Heights Borough Council and School Board have not been certified yet by the Bergen County Board of Elections, but each of the component pieces of the vote have been confirmed. Per the Board of Elections, the Provisional vote tallies were official, and all that remained was adding them to the already official tallies to come up with a final vote.
Coming up on two weeks since Election Day, these are the numbers as they stand right now.
|DEM STEVEN REYNGOUDT||2197||199||54||2450|
|REP ROSARIO RUSSELL LIPARI||2140||196||29||2365|
|REP MICHAEL SICKELS||2124||194||27||2345|
|DEM HELAYNE WEISS||2094||187||54||2335|
|Board of Education|
Democrat Steven Reyngoudt was elected with the most votes, and will take Republican David Gonzales seat on the Council. Incumbent Republican Russell Lipari narrowly defeated fellow Republican Michael Sickels and Democrat Helayne Weiss for the second council seat. Gonzalez stepped in for Peter Traina after Traina resigned last December due to personal reasons.
The result would shift the balance between the parties slightly, as the Republican control would go from 5-1 to 4-2 on the Council.
Unless something changes the Board of Education will have two new members in Chris DeLorenzo and Lauren Terranova. Alan Baker, who resigned from the Board of Education in September, after the deadline to remove him from the ballot, received the most votes.
