LITTLE FALLS, NJ -- Along with the presidential race coming up on November 3, there is also a mayoral race here in Little Falls and TAPintoTV recently spoke with both candidates. Donald Radcliffe, running on the Republican ticket, shared his point-of-view and outlook for the community with Executive Producer Brian Brodeur.
A resident of Little Falls for nearly 40 years, Radcliffe worked as a CPA and spent four decades as a successful business executive. Over the years, he has held many roles in the community, such as President of Inwood at Great Notch, Committeeman, Fire Commissioner, Planning Board Member, Chair of the Rent Leveling Board, and former special assistant to Mayor Kulick.
Radcliffe said he joined the race for mayor because “it’s time to give back some,” he said. “I thought I would provide some benefit for the town because I’m a little concerned at its direction.”
“I think we might need somebody who has a little bit more business experience to deal with some of the real difficult issues,” said Radcliffe. Notably, he mentioned the lack of tax revenue from Montclair State University, who has been expanding their presence in town over the past several years. Radcliffe mentioned the possibility of creating public/private partnerships in order to drive some funds back to Little Falls.
In addition, he said he was “concerned that there’s one-party control in town. We need to get, I think, some balance,” said Radcliffe, “and that’s what we’re hoping to do.”
