. Of the three candidates, ONLY John DaPuzzo has the background, experience, and proven leadership abilities to continue to be Mayor of Mahwah. John has a long and distinquished record of honesty, not just saying what he thinks people want to hear at every turn of events, and a sterling background and reputation as a long time elected official here in town. Why do you think he was selected as interim mayor in the first place? It is because of his past performance, action and reputation, which definitely qualifies him for re-election. John stands high above the other candidates in many areas of qualification, and outright standing by what he says. He does not 'stick his finger in the air' at every turn of events to see which way the wind blows. Re-elect John DaPuzzo, the best choice for Mahwah!!

Re-elect??? Earl you must have forgotten DaPuzzo was never "elected" Mayor of Mahwah. And just so the voters know they didn't ask all the council members who wanted to be considered for Mayor...Lisa was never asked.....The DaPuzzo gang was ploting this out while the Mayor was in the hospital and still alive. Don't try and DaPuzzo look like and angel....He plotted to be king before the Mayor past away he was still alive in the hopital. And Sam was right what was the rush to crown DaPuzzo could the town have burried the Mayor as the Mayor instead they burried him as the ex Mayor since John took over before he was laid to rest. Sterling reputation??? He claims to have been the Mayors friend???? why wasn't he at the hospital with him instead of secret meetings to take over. If you don't believe me ask Lisa. She was never asked if she had an interest nor John Speich. Ask Sam why he didn't vote to have DaPuzzo named Mayor....Why because Sam had class and wanted to do the right thing for Mayor Martel. Ask Lisa why she is even running after 24 years she will tell you its because she didn't like what she saw going down when the Mayor died. The Best Choice for Mahwah is to not elect DaPuzzo as Mayor and make sure he doesn't backdoor his way back on the Council if Lisa wins by having his gang appoint him back on council to fill Lisa's spot.

Don't try and (MAKE) DaPuzzo look like and (AN) angel....He plotted to be king before the Mayor past (PASSED) away(.) he (HE) was still alive in the hopital (HOSPITAL). And Sam was right what was the rush to crown DaPuzzo(?) could (COULD) the town have burried (BURIED) the Mayor as the Mayor instead they burried (BURIED) him as the ex Mayor since John took over before he was laid to rest. Sterling reputation??? He claims to have been the Mayors (MAYOR'S) friend???? why (WHY) wasn't he at the hospital with him instead of (HAVING) secret meetings to take over. (?) If you don't believe me ask Lisa. She was never asked if she had an interest nor (WAS) John Speich. Ask Sam why he didn't vote to have DaPuzzo named Mayor....Why because Sam had class and wanted to do the right thing for Mayor Martel. Ask Lisa why she is even running after 24 years she will tell you its (IT'S) because she didn't like what she saw going down when the Mayor died.

Have you ever heard of spell check, Mr. Weixeldorfer? I'm glad that Mr. Laforet has such professional people backing him. I hope you are not planning to run again for council. The last thing Mahwah needs is a trash-talking, uneducated representative.
Daniel Weixeldorfer November 07, 2011 at 02:41 AM
LMAO, Another DaPuzzo Groupie with a fake name, who just signed up to leave this message. Does John DaPuzzo have any real supporters that would stand up for him using their real name besides Allan Kidd and Rob Hermansen it doesn't seem so. How are all you sissy's going to vote for him on tuesday? "Hi I'm Educated Citizen, Hi I'm Ted, Hi I'm Q, Hi I'm Mark, Hi I'm James we want all want to vote for DaPuzzo but we don't want anyone to know who we are....were afraid people will laugh at us. (I'm sure people laughed at all of you from when you were little till today so I'm sure you are use to it) As for your last comment to me "The last thing Mahwah needs is a trash-talking, uneducated representative." Guess that means you won't be voting for Rob Hermansen when he runs for freeholder next year. Grow some balls and then talk to me Educated Citizen Sissy.

Mr. Weixeldorfer aka (educated citizen) You seem to forget that the other candidates have their own 'agendas' and backgrounds of waffling or avoiding issues. John DaPuzzo has a proven record, as Council Member and acting Mayor. Your snide ad hominem attacks proves your complete lack of respect for other's opinions and your lack of any tact in discussions on Patch. As I said before, John DaPuzzo is the BEST person to be mayor and to effectively and efficiently run Mahwah, and not just bow to certain 'special interests' every time an issue occurs.
Daniel Weixeldorfer November 07, 2011 at 01:59 PM
Earl are you on crack? I'm aka Educated Citizen? Educated Citizen just complained about me not using spell check on my droid. And as for bowing to "special interest" who would that be the taxpayers who voices were not listen to? or 1 developer looking to rezone his property to make it more valuable? Wow what ever you are on must be stronger then crack!

You can say whatever lies and falsifications you want Daniel but you cannot deny that Earl Grey produces better tea than you.
Earl Grey November 07, 2011 at 07:18 PM
Mr. Weixeldorfer, "there you go again", as Ronald Reagan would be paraphrased. Seems you just can't avoid ad hominem attacks, rather than sticking with real issues. And the only "crack" I ever see around here tends to be hyphenated with "pots"
Ted November 07, 2011 at 10:59 PM
Dan you are completely full of fiction. Just make stuff up and post it hoping in some contorted way of thinking that you might change history. Your version of history matches Lisa's completely. She made most of it up too. Only accurate part of that was nobody asked her to be Mayor. And for good reasons. The part you missed or hid was Lisa announced she was running for Mayor at Dick Martels wake. In the funeral parlor. Class act. But she claimed she decided to run after witnessing some horiffic Council meeting....did you miss that Dan? And your predicition of the giant nasty attack by DaPuzzo at the 11th hour, like all your others WRONG. That crew had a better weapon it was let Bill turn Weixeldorfer loose on the Patch. Anyone with a different view from yours gets attacked personally. Not only have you turned a lot of people off you probably flipped a few Bill supporters in the process. Keep up the great work Dan and oh by the way there is one other prediction you had wrong and the answer to that is coming tomorrow. Sorry to hear about the spell checker in your droid. If you knew how to spell you wouldn't need it. That alone does a lot for cedibility.

Ted you spelled credibility wrong.....LMAO
