Passaic County Democratic Committee Announces County Slate, Zoila Cassanova To Top County Ticket As Party’s Candidate For County Surrogate
(Woodland Park, NJ- March 6, 2021)– Passaic County Democratic Chairman John Currie announced the county-wide candidates for surrogate and county commissioner after a screening process by Democratic Municipal Leaders representing all 16 Passaic County towns. The screening process was held at the American Legion 238 in Woodland Park, a location that allowed for appropriate social distancing protocols.
The Passaic County Democratic Committee announced Zoila Cassanova from Wayne, a Principal Court Attorney with the New York Court System, Supreme Court, Criminal Term, Bronx and Queens County, as the candidate for county surrogate. Cassanova will run for election on a team with current County Commissioners Cassandra “Sandi” Lazzara, John Bartlett and Assad Akhter.
“We are proud of the important work being done by county elected officials during the global pandemic. While admittedly there is still work to do before things can go back to normal, Passaic County remains a leader throughout the state in testing, tracing and vaccinating residents. Commissioners Sandi Lazzara, John Bartlett and Assad Akhter have proven they have what it takes to lead during difficult times, and they deserve our full support for re-election,” said Passaic County Democratic Chairman John Currie.
According to Chairman Currie, the new surrogate candidate Zoila Cassanova will be campaigning alongside an established team of public servants with a strong record of investing in services for seniors and veterans, upgrading parks and recreation programs, and maintaining sound financial practices which have resulted in the county’s highest bond ratings ever, as reported by independent ratings agencies. We are committed to working hard every day to deliver safer neighborhoods, improved infrastructure, and more economic development and jobs for local Passaic County residents.
“We look forward to welcoming Zoila and her skill-set to our Democratic family,” added Chairman Currie. “We look forward to engaging with Democrats throughout Passaic County as we head into primary election season.”
