Dennis Marco sworn in as North Haledon Councilman December 30th as Wife Anne Looks On in Support

Dennis Marco and running mate Michael Galluccio staged a stunning upset in the North Haledon Council race Nov. 5, unseating the incumbents on a pledge to fight tax increases and bring balance to the borough’s wholly Republican council.

Marco and Galluccio campaigned door to door throughout North Haledon in the months and weeks leading up to the election. Their practical approach resonated with voters, who hadn’t elected a Democrat to the office since 1999.

Marco and Galluccio defeated the two incumbents by roughly 100 total votes.

North Haledon is governed under the borough form of government. The government consists of a Mayor and Council comprising six council members, with all positions elected at large. The Borough Council consists of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year.

North Haledon is located in Passaic County with a population in excess of 8,400 residents.
