Fairview Mayor Vincent Bellucci, Jr. Elected President
of Bergen County Democratic Mayors Association
HACKENSACK – Fairview Mayor Vincent Bellucci, Jr. has been elected to serve as the new President of the Bergen County Democratic Mayors Association (BCDMA), the organization announced today. BCDMA is committed to supporting Democratic elected officials and candidates throughout the state’s most populous county.
“It is an honor to be elected president of this great organization and together we are going to work incredibly hard to do our part to help Democrats achieve success up and down the ballot,” said Mayor Bellucci. “Democrats have had great success throughout the county in recent years, not just at the ballot box but in making our communities even better places to live and raise our families. We are going to build on that momentum to grow our party.”
“Mayors are a critical piece of the foundation of the Democratic Party here in Bergen County,” said Lou Stellato, Chairman of the Democratic Committee of Bergen County. “Mayor Bellucci understands what it takes for our party to flourish at the local level. Democrats are about building from the bottom up and a strong Mayors Association will serve to make our party even stronger.”
First elected in 1996, Bellucci is the longest serving mayor in the history of Fairview. He is currently serving his sixth term. This is his second time serving as president of the BCDMA.
Chairman Lou Stellato is also a former president of the BCDMA. He served as mayor of Lyndhurst from 1989 to 1997.
The organization also announced that three others have been re-elected to leadership positions. Robert Pacicco, former mayor of Leonia, has been re-elected to serve as Vice-President; Linda Schwager, mayor of Oakland, has been re-elected to serve as Secretary; and Thomas Richards, former mayor of Maywood, has been re-elected to serve as Treasurer.
