As former Mayor of the great Village of Ridgewood, business professional, active volunteer in youth sports and my parish, and a member of the Bergen County Open Space Trust Fund Advisory Committee, I have always worked hard to build a strong future for my six wonderful children and give back to the community that has done so much for me and my family.
More than 30 years ago, my family and I came to this country from the Dominican Republic and found a welcoming home in Ridgewood. I have always believed in the promise of the American dream and I am so proud that two years ago I had the honor of becoming the first ever Latino Mayor of Ridgewood.
I believe such an achievement was possible because we live in the greatest country in the world. I also believe that we are fortunate to live in the greatest county in New Jersey – with excellent schools, thriving businesses, good jobs, beautiful parks and safe, strong communities.
I ran for Bergen County Commissioner because every family deserves the same opportunities I had in order to realize their dreams. While keeping Bergen County strong and building the best possible future for our families is not without its challenges, I am optimistic about what lies ahead.
I am committed to fighting for our Democratic values, ready to take on the tough challenges facing our families and eager to work alongside our Democratic Commissioner team and County Executive James Tedesco to build on the progress they have made so far.
