2013 City Council Campaign Announcement

<< < (5/5)

Error in headline -candidate, not councilman

Victor E Sasson:
No correction today on North, though story in The Record got it right.

Victor E Sasson:
I continue to refine my platform:

Vote for peace and quiet.
Vote against the machine.
Split your vote for the future of Hackensack.
Take back our city from special interests.   

VICTOR E. SASSON, a former reporter and copy editor at The Record who is running as an independent in the May 14 City Council election, is asking for your vote.

I am running on a quality of life platform that seeks to rein in property tax increases and improve city services.

The election is the most important in decades, and will determine if Hackensack -- widely mocked as “Zisaville” -- will finally be able to end the corrupt rule of the Zisa family.

My name will appear at the bottom of a column of 10 other candidates seeking 5 seats -- symbolizing how I will get to the bottom of things.

Vote for SASSON (Line 11), Canestrino (2), Sims (3), Greenman (4), Battaglia (5).

If elected, I will:

End the patronage mill at City Hall.
Cut the city budget by $2 million and maintain services (over).
Sell up to 15 cars now being driven home by city employees.
Require city employees to live in Hackensack.
Work with Teterboro Airport to reduce aircraft noise.
Encourage the non-profit Hackensack University Medical Center to pay more to the city in lieu of taxes.
Stop a 19-story, long-term, acute-care hospital from going up between Prospect and Summit avenues, near Golf Place.
Get Hackensack to purchase more efficient vehicles, and install more solar panels on city buildings and schools.
Start collection of garbage and recyclables after 6:30 a.m.
Ban commercial landscaping work on Sundays.
Get police to crack down on speeders, stop-sign violators and loud motorcycles, and earmark extra revenue for street repairs.
Encourage the city to undertake a major program to repave streets. Have turn lanes installed on Passaic Street, at Summit Avenue, and at other traffic bottlenecks.
Improve the food at Hackensack High School, and encourage administrators to plant vegetable gardens at all of the schools to fight the obesity epidemic.
Encourage the City Council to deliver a property tax cut to residents by passing along some of the additional tax revenue from major building projects, and gasoline and electricity savings.
Call me with suggestions or if you need a ride to the polls: 201-488-3012.
