This Day in History: 1957-02-19
There were no surprises at the Republican Party meetings in Mahwah, Allendale and Upper Saddle River. All incumbents were nominated to run again. In Mahwah Fardale resident Charles N. Feldman was named to run again for township committee as was R. Ralph Seberry of the Cragmere section. Feldman, the Mahwah Mayor was also expected to run again for Republican County Committee member. There was no evidence that there would be repeat of the vigorous primary fight of the previous year, but local Democrats opened their campaign by publishing a four-page first issue of “The Mahwah Democrat” containing lively criticisms of the Republican administration. They announced that they would contest strongly for the two seats on the Committee.
