Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

North Haledon is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government, which is used in 218 municipalities (of the 565) statewide, making it the most common form of government in New Jersey.[35] The governing body is comprised of the Mayor and the Borough Council, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. The Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council is comprised of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[6] The Borough form of government used by North Haledon is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[36][37]

As of 2020, the Mayor of North Haledon is Republican Randolph J. "Randy" George, whose term of office ends on December 31, 2022. Members of the North Haledon Borough Council are Council President Donna Puglisi (R, 2021), Bruce O. Iacobelli (R, 2022), Rocco Luisi (R, 2020), Raymond T. Melone (R, 2020), George Pomianek (R, 2021) and Keith Salviano (R, 2022).[3][38][39][40][41][42]

Mayor Randy George was criticized by residents for his use of two borough-owned generators in the persistent electric outages during the days following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy to provide power to the refrigerators in his ice cream store, while Police Chief Robert Bracco had used another municipal-owned generator to provide power at his home. A special committee formed of borough council members found that the actions were justifiable in light of the circumstances and enabled them to serve the borough during the emergency, but recommended that rules be established to govern personal use of borough property by municipal employees and officials.[43]

Federal, state and county representation[edit]

North Haledon is located in the 11th Congressional District[44] and is part of New Jersey's 35th state legislative district.[9][45][46] Prior to the 2010 Census, North Haledon had been part of the 8th Congressional District, a change made by the New Jersey Redistricting Commission that took effect in January 2013, based on the results of the November 2012 general elections.[47]

For the 117th United States Congress, New Jersey's Eleventh Congressional District is represented by Mikie Sherrill (D, Montclair).[48] New Jersey is represented in the United States Senate by Democrats Cory Booker (Newark, term ends 2027)[49] and Bob Menendez (Harrison, term ends 2025).[50][51]

For the 2022–2023 session, the 35th Legislative District of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the State Senate by Nellie Pou (D, North Haledon) and in the General Assembly by Shavonda E. Sumter (D, Paterson) and Benjie E. Wimberly (D, Paterson).[52]

Passaic County is governed by a seven-member Board of Chosen Freeholders, who are elected at-large to staggered three-year terms office on a partisan basis, with two or three seats coming up for election each year as part of the November general election in a three-year cycle. At a reorganization meeting held in January, the board selects a Director and Deputy Director from among its members to serve for a one-year term.[53] As of 2017, Passaic County's Freeholders are Director Cassandra "Sandi" Lazzara (D, 2018; Woodland Park),[54] Deputy Director Bruce James (D, 2017; Clifton),[55] Assad R. Akhter (D, 2018 - appointed to serve an unexpired term; Paterson),[56] John W. Bartlett (D, 2018; Wayne),[57] Theodore O. Best Jr. (D, 2017; Paterson),[58] Terry Duffy (D, 2019; West Milford),[59] and Pasquale "Pat" Lepore (D, 2019; Woodland Park).[60][61][62][63] Constitutional officers elected on a countywide basis are County Clerk Kristin M. Corrado (R, 2019; Totowa),[64] Sheriff Richard H. Berdnik (D, 2019; Little Falls)[65] and Surrogate Bernice Toledo (D, 2021; Prospect Park).[66][62]

For ninth through twelfth grades, public school students attend Manchester Regional High School, which serves students from Haledon, North Haledon, and Prospect Park.[83][84] The school is located in Haledon. The district participates in the Interdistrict Public School Choice Program, which allows non-resident students to attend the district's schools without cost to their parents, with tuition paid by the state. Available slots are announced annually by grade.[85] North Haledon residents had successfully voted in 2003 to leave the district, choosing to send their high school aged students to Midland Park High School in nearby Bergen County, New Jersey. In August 2004, the New Jersey Supreme Court decided against North Haledon, citing that the town's exit from the district would shift the ethnic and racial balance of the high school.[86] As of the 2018–19 school year, the high school had an enrollment of 833 students and 62.3 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 13.4:1.[87] Seats on the high school district's nine-member board of education are allocated based on the population of the constituent districts, with four seats assigned to North Haledon.[88]
