Dear Editor:   Public service and giving back to North Arlington are the primary reasons why I chose to seek a seat on our mayor and council.   As a young adult, I will bring a fresh perspective to governing that I believe the council needs.   While I'm a Democrat, I consider myself non-partisan and willing to work with all to find the right solutions to rising property taxes, redevelopment and maintaining a community character that keeps North Arlington small, safe and suburban.   This race for mayor and two council seats will determine the direction of North Arlington for the rest of the decade, if not longer.   As a business student, I'm concerned about the lack of progress regarding redevelopment and the difficult road ahead. The only way we can lift this community is through comprehensive redevelopment that does not increase North Arlington's population via housing and additional services, but through responsible revenue alternatives that shifts the burden from residential to...

Dear Editor:   I would like to publicly thank Mayor Massa, Councilman Mark Yampaglia and Dan Castro for all their help!   These gentlemen have renewed my faith in government. I went to them with a lot of concerns about the place I live in. They came to our complex and listened to what some of the tenants concerns were, and before you know it they helped us right away.   I feel people should know how compassionate and caring these men are, and they are most definitely true to their word! So again a big thank you to Mayor Massa of North Arlington, Councilman Mark Yampaglia and Mr. Dan Castro!   Denise SmithPresident Canterbury Tenants AssociationNorth ArlingtonSmith and McGowan

The MASSA Redevelopment Plan:   Designate North Arlington as a Suburban Enterprise Zone (SEZ) to attract development and redevelopers through incentives and pilot programs - generating ratables to keep taxes stable. North Arlington will partner with neighboring communities and the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission to lobby the state and create a remediation incentive program to safely clean up Meadowlands properties for development usage. Under the Massa Plan, the Mayor and Council will retain direct control over the redevelopment process, unlike Bianchi’s Plan that gave North Arlington Encap. They will meet on a regular basis to discuss redevelopment specific issues and seek community input. A Redevelopment Liaison will be appointed to streamline the process, increase accountability and make the process more open and transparent for homeowners. Negotiate a state pilot program to generate recurring revenue and permanent funding sources in lieu of properties that are undevelopable or...

Dear Editor:   Elections bring clarity to any discussion.   Having knocked on some 2,000 doors in this campaign since August, I believe I understand what voters expect from elected officials like myself.   They have asked me time and time again not to raise taxes, and I am...


Mayor Pete Massa, North Arlington
Between 2010 and 2013 Joe Bianchi had three years to create a redevelopment plan for North Arlington.   Republicans were in control and they paid tens of thousands for a 52-page plan that for the most part is unworkable, ineffective and dormant.  Forwarded to the Planning Board, Bianchi and the Republicans claimed this plan would yield "clean industrial ratables, jobs for local residents and income for the borough."  Four years later anjd still gathering dust, the Bianchi plan has failed.  Under Republicans there is no redevelopment progress.  None.  The promise of wholesale establishments, data centers, research laboratories, flex space, self storage facilities, commercial recreation and a film studio are nothing but "pie-in-the-sky" rhetoric that lacks serious interest or inquiry!  More importantly, candidate Bianchi and his woefully inexperienced running-mates Pronti and Cruz have no redevelopment credentials or skill set.  Mayor Pete Massa, who stopped the politically inspired EnCap project that was embraced by candidate Bianchi wants to negotiate directly with private developers and build a real plan that is reasonable and workable.  To implement a new direction and plan, voters need to give Mayor Massa his team so that GOP mismanagement of the redevelopment process will cease once and for all!  Joe Bianchi served nearly three decades as a planning board member and what plan has he developed?  Giving away "air rights" to a local business?  Supporting EnCap?  Having served three years in the majority, Bianchi supported a plan that does not work while simultaneously raising property taxes three times!  North Arlington needs an effective leader like Mayor Massa without the constraints of GOP bickering and attacks.  As a school board member Massa led from the head of the line and delivered on the transformation of the Wilson elementary school into the Middle School we have today!  Bianchi opposed that successful project and referendum.  As mayor, Pete Massa worked...
