A 1/4 of a point decrease in millage (25 cents for every taxable dollar).

A 3% raise and a 5% bonus for city staff.

National news 3 of every 10 families (30%) can not adequately feed their children and the council votes for tax increase?

Sullivan was chastised for voting against the government elitists (who are far from that.).

Sullivan will be reelected by the home owners and renters not beholding to a city paycheck.

Sullivan is more than qualified when poised against Marni Sarwicki.

Well...tonight Sullivan voted no because, who on earth really knows. He found out or was told he voted for a tax increase, so he "corrected"that tonight. The man is out to lunch.

Lynn,

Show your work, please. 71% is not correct. Is that a result of your Bergen County education?

1Sandy,

He raised taxes because he was flummoxed as usual. He did not understand the Roll Back rate!

Why did SULLIVAN vote to raise our taxes? Ask him, when you see him.

johngalt says, "We need truthful, sincere, and honest elected officials now more than ever!" In that case, VOTE SULLIVAN OUT so we can get truthful, sincere, and honest elected officials now more than ever.

Mayor Sullivan has my vote. Not because he can “run” a meeting, speak eloquently, play golf, or because he looks good in Capri pants. He has my vote because he understands the need to control the reckless spending and the constant greed of the unions. Many homeowners and local businesses just now see some light ahead. To fall back into the pathological spending of the boom years is the very last thing a municipality with nearly $1billion dollars of debt should do. His opponent has been here just 2 years and proudly list “attended conventions” on her resume’. Really? We need truthful, sincere, and honest elected officials now more than ever!

And it starts...innuendo, hearsay, no real facts or actually being wherever a supposed incident occurs. Nice clean campaign, right Sullivan. Yeah, right.

JohnGalt I don't consider Sullivan to be my enemy, I consider him to be inept to do the job we elected him to do...that is represent all of the citizens. Not just those who share his personal viewpoint.

SULLIVAN 2849 votes. ANYONE BUT SULLIVAN 4872 votes. In RAG world SULLIVAN wins. Go back to the 2011 primary and get educated. 75 percent of the votes that were cast were for anyone but the incumbent, you remeber Diele & Brandt. What happened in the General. That's right, the incumbents, Diele & Brandt got 40 percent of the vote and their challengers got 60 percent. Note to the RAGs: Lying to the tax payers is one thing, but when you start lying to yourself, now you know you are in big trouble.

You guys can argue about the numbers all you want but with a 9 percent turnout in the primary the results of the general are difficult to predict. So, the most important thing is to get out and vote in November. I am going to vote for the candidates that are least likely to raid my wallet. But, what I would really like to see is a high voter turnout so the true majority can be represented what ever that may be.

Terry, 7721 people went out to vote, Sullivan garnered 2849 votes. That means that 4872 people voted for someone else.
