Schwartz, Orgen and Pagan Are Working Overtime to Help Keep Teaneck Safe During COVID-19 Pandemic
Teaneck, N.J. — The Moving Teaneck Forward team consisting of Deputy Mayor Mark J. Schwartz and Planning Board Members Karen Lew Orgen and Michael Pagan have been working overtime dealing with the COVID-19/Coronavirus crisis ever since the pandemic broke out.
Teaneck has more than 125 cases of COVID-19 and several residents have unfortunately died from complications related to the dangerous virus.
Deputy Mayor Schwartz, who is also a volunteer firefighter and an 18-year member of the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps, has been working around the clock and is focused on keeping residents informed of all township-related developments through numerous telephone town halls and through social media.
Orgen, who was the first female president of the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps, has been working overtime in her capacity as a pharmacist to help keep her customers, patients and neighbors healthy and well.
Pagan, who also is a member of the Teaneck Senior Citizens Advisory Board, is working overtime at his job on behalf of Bergen County to keep our neighbors and all Bergen County residents informed through his position as Public Information Officer for the County.
The three candidates make up the Moving Teaneck Forward slate and said that they will not stop working overtime until Teaneck’s 41,000 residents are no longer living under the threat of COVID-19:
“During difficult times like this when our community is dealing with a public health emergency as dangerous as COVID-19, it is important that everyone work overtime together to help as many residents as possible so that we can help keep Teaneck safe. Our residents are strong and we will flatten the curve so long as neighbors continue to look out for one another, we remember to wash our hands regularly, and we practice social distancing. The three of us are here to help Teaneck residents any way we can and we are always reachable via email at email@example.com or by phone at 201.474.5719. Together, we will help keep Teaneck safe, and moving forward.”
Teaneck’s Council election will be held on May 12th. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced last week that the election will be strictly Vote By Mail.
