To the Editor,

I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Marilyn Lichtenberg and Ada Erik on their primary victory in last weeks election for two West Milford Council seats.

As a first-time candidate running for council, it was a very humbling and gratifying experience. I want to thank my family, friends and fellow residents for their support and making this an experience, I’ll never forget.

Having the privilege to represent the WMRRP, along with Council President Tim Wagner, gave me the opportunity to meet hundreds of West Milford residents.

I’m proud that we ran a very positive campaign, presenting out platform of pushing the state and county for additional aid for our governance of our watersheds ( that provide over 3 million Jerseyans and thousands of businesses with their water ), as well as, fighting for a Highlands Preservation Zone that would reduce sales tax to 3.5%.

With my position as N J Co-Chairman of the Greenwood Lake Commission, representing West Milford, I will continue our fight to pass legislation that will have the GLC receiving $500,000.00 annually.

Since the GLC has never had permanent funding, passing of this legislation will help our efforts to improve the water quality, safety issues, as well as, providing an economic stimulus to the general Greenwood Lake Community. As Vice-Chair of HEAT, our goal is to continue initiating programs and events that benefit our residents and business community, with events such as the Circus, Octoberfest, Shop Local, Lighting of Veterans Park, to name a few.

Being part of these great organizations, affords me the opportunity to give back to our community, which I’m proud to be part of.

Thank you all for your support and I’m looking forward to seeing what new adventures the future holds.

Paul M. Zarrillo

West Milford
