Letter To The Editor: Voting For Bill Laforet

Election is November 8

My fellow Mahwah residents:

I hope that you will take just a few moments to consider this letter. My name is Daniel Weixeldorfer and I write to urge you to support BILL LAFORET FOR MAYOR on November 8th.

Mahwah needs BILL LAFORET as he is the only candidate for mayor committed to the values of service above self. If your values find it unacceptable for our other mayoral candidates to trade one of your weekly trash collections(which saved Mahwah taxpayers $60,000) for their own personal medical benefits(which costs Mahwah taxpayer $60,000) then BILL LAFORET is your only choice for mayor. If your values are equally offended by our other candidates’ refusal to adhere to the well advertised state pension and benefits reforms then BILL LAFORET is your only choice for mayor.

Can your finances tolerate another 26% increase in taxes and another 50% increase in water rates?  If not, it is time for a change. The leadership of our other mayoral candidates on the proposed mall development has already led us into court and has caused tension among the citizenry.  The business approach of BILL LAFORET will ensure that the will of the people is reflected on this important issue.

Mahwah’s challenges are no different than those of our country, State and other local governments. We are living in difficult and financially challenging times. Our politicians have failed us. Over the next week you will receive a barrage of smears, endorsements from political cronies and claims of experience typical of desperate politicians. Tell these politicians that we have had enough of their “experience” and vote them out!! It is time for a seasoned business person with a proven commitment to service to Mahwah and rejection of the politics of personal gain.

These are my values, those of BILL LAFORET and hopefully yours. These are the values that we must demand from all of our public servants. On November 8th I urge you to show the politicians that we have had enough and vote for the values of service above self exemplified by our dedicated volunteers and BILL LAFORET.

VOTE COLUMN 2 ON NOVEMBER 8TH. VOTE BILL LAFORET for MAYOR.

Sincerely,

Daniel J. Weixeldorfer
