Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 1 p.m. when our guests on Record Talk Radio will be Bob Yudin and Lou Stellato, the chairmen of the Bergen County Republican and Democratic parties respectively.
As they've done for the last four years, the two party leaders will discuss the results of Tuesday's election in which State Assembly and Freeholder candidates were on the ballot.
Have a question for either of them? Send your suggestions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the day we have been waiting for, the First Ward will have a replacement Councilperson to fill the vacancy left by Councilman Anthony Davis and temporarily held by Rev. Staton. There were five candidates at one point but that changed when Alveria Spencer withdrew due to an unfortunate slippage of the tongue. And then there were four, school board member Manny Martinez, former Council candidates Bernard Jones and Mike Jackson as well as newcomer Veronica Ovalles. Also on the ballot is the Recreation Tax that has Homeowners furious with the Mayor and his administration. Oh yes and the Assemblymen Benji Wimberly and Shavonda Sumter plus the Freeholders are running for reelection on the Democratic ticket. There has not been much said about the Republican candidates but they are there. Seats for the school board are available and it is gonna be close
Tune into Record Talk Radio when Democratic Freeholder Thomas Sullivan Jr. will be our guest on the first of a series of interviews with the candidates for Bergen County Freeholder.
Sullivan, a former councilman in Bergenfield and Montval, was appointed to the board earlier this year to fill the seat vacated by James Tedesco after he became county executive.
Sullivan is running for a one-year unexpired term. He is opposed by Republican Daisy Ortiz-Berger of River Edge.

Bergen County - like many parts of the country - has been coping with an epidemic of heroin addiction and related problems.
Join us on Record Talk Radio on Tuesday, 10:30 a.m. when we'll discuss what's being done to address the problem.
Our guest will be Sue Debiak, coordinator of the Office of Alcohol & Drug Dependency within the County Department of Health Services.
Debiak recently briefed the Bergen County Freeholders on the work her office is doing to combat addiction throughout the county.
As a result of that briefing, three freeholders urged County Executive James Tedesco to "begin a dialog" with Bergen Regional Medical Center aimed at expanding the number of beds in the hospital's detox unit.

Join us at 10 a.m. Monday, June 22 when Record Talk Radio will feature the first of two broadcasts on the topic of unmanned aerial drones being used by law enforcement and emergency managers.
The first program will feature excerpts from a presentation that Lt. Matthew Tiedemann, coordinator of Bergen County's Office of Emergency Management, gave last week to the freeholders.
The second segment is a pre-recorded interview with Ari Rosmarin, public policy director of the American Civil Liberties Union, who will talk about concerns his group has with the privacy implications posed by drones.
Tune in to Record Talk Radio at 1:30 p.m. when our next broadcast will feature interviews with Bergen County Executive James Tedesco and Freeholder John Felice.
Both men were interviewed on Wednesday night, shortly after the freeholders adopted a 2015 budget that raised taxes by 4.3 percent.
Tedesco talked about some of the reasons for the increase, including rising debt service and pension costs.
Felice, who served as the board's budget chairman this year, talked about how health care costs might be curbed nextyear.
Join us for the next broadcast of Record Talk Radio on Wednesday, June 17 at 10:30 a.m. when our guest will be Renee McCue, a public health nurse with the Bergen County Department of Health Services.
McCue will talk about rabies and wildlife, a subject she covered in a recent presentation to the Bergen County Freeholders.

Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino talks about his department's 2015 budget at 10 a.m. Tuesday, May 18 on the next episode of Record Talk Radio.
Saudino talks about the savings he anticipates from the decision to fold the County Police into the Sheriff's Office.
He also discusses some of the cuts the freeholders are seeking from him in this year's budget and well as additional funds he is seeking for training
The question of how much money to raise through the Open Space tax is a perennial topic in Bergen County. It came up again last week when the Freeholders voted to keep the tax at its current rate of one-quarter cent per $100 of assessed valuation. However, County Administrator Dominic Novelli left the door open to perhaps raising it next year.
In this segment of Record Talk Radio, Novelli talks about the administration's position on the tax. Freeholder David Ganz also weighs in on why he feels that amount is insufficient, given the county's needs.
In the second segment, Retired Marine Captain Ben Cascio talks about what it was like to be asked to give the keynote speech at Friday's Military Appreciation ceremony.
Join us at 11 a.m. Friday, Feb. 28 when our guest on Record Talk Radio will be Anthony Cureton, president of the Bergen County branch of the NAACP.
I'll talk with Cureton about a proposal his chapter recently made to reconfigure the way freeholders are elected in Bergen County.
Currently, all seven freeholders are elected at large by the voters in Bergen County's 70 municipalities. The NAACP has suggested electing at least some of the freeholders on a district wide basis.
Do you have a question for Cureton? If so, email your suggestion to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us on Friday, Jan. 3 at 10 a.m. when our guest on Record Talk Radio will be Bergen County Freeholder Chairman David Ganz.
This 30-minute program will air the day after the freeholders have their annual reorganization meeting, where Ganz is expected to be elected to another one-year term as chairman.
We'll talk to Ganz about some of the issues that are likely to come up before the board in 2014 plus what it will mean when the Democrats have a veto-proof 5-2 majority.
If you have a question for Ganz, email your suggestion to me at email@example.com.
