Incumbents Joseph Cervieri and Harvey Sohmer easily beat their Republican challengers Tuesday.
The Fort Lee Borough Council will once again remain the same, all Democratic, after both incumbents won reelection Tuesday. In unofficial results and with an unknown number of absentee ballots yet to be counted, incumbent Councilman and current Council president Joseph Cervieri was the top vote getter, with 6,318. His running mate, incumbent Councilman Harvey Sohmer received 6,271 votes, both numbers easily enough to defeat Republican challengers Thomas A. Bennett and Peter B. “Mack” Campbell, who received 3,458 and 3,285 votes respectively. "I am glad that the voters of Fort Lee had the confidence in me to elect me to serve them for another three years," said Sohmer, who was first elected to the Council in 2008. "I plan to continue to …
Challengers Esther Han Silver, David Sarnoff and Holly Morell easily defeated John Bang, the only incumbent running for reelection to the Fort Lee Board of Education Tuesday. Candace Romba was the only candidate running for a one-year unexpired term.
The Fort Lee Board of Education will look markedly different next year, after voters in Fort Lee Tuesday overwhelmingly voted for the three challengers for three-year terms on the board over the one incumbent running. In unofficial results and absentee ballots yet to be tallied, Esther Han Silver received 2,562 votes, David Sarnoff received 2,415 and Holly Morell garnered 2,183. All three easily outpaced incumbent Bang, who received just 1,660 votes. The BOE announced in September that it had only one candidate who would appear on Tuesday's ballot to fill the rest of former board president Arthur Levine’s unexpired term, and he resigned from the board in August. Candace Romba was therefore the only name on the ballot to serve out the …
Confusion, delays and an inundation of ballots caused Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno to extend voting deadline until 8 p.m. on Friday.

Republican Peter B. Campbell previously said he would likely “step aside” if he won Tuesday’s Primary election; Fort Lee voters overwhelming support Rep. Steve Rothman, who was upset by Rep. Bill Pascrell.
In the only contested municipal primary election race in Fort Lee Tuesday, Republican candidates for Borough Council Thomas Bennett and Peter B. Campbell, who were running together, easily defeated Rosanna Surace, who was running alone. Campbell received 468 votes, Bennett received 467 and Surace nabbed just 107 votes, even though Campbell said this week he would probably bow out in favor of another candidate if he won and endorse Surace if she won. “Whatever the case, I probably will be stepping aside for another candidate if I’m not eliminated in the primaries,” Campbell told Patch. “And if I am eliminated by Surace, then she would have the full weight of my endorsement.” If Campbell does bow out, the nomination does not automatically go…

There are three names on the Primary election ballot for Fort Lee Borough Council for two nominations on the Republican ticket. But Peter B. Campbell says that if he wins, he will probably bow out, and that if Rosanna Surace wins, he will endorse her.
Tuesday is Primary election day, and Fort Lee voters will go to the polls to choose their party’s nominees for Borough Council. On the Democratic side, there really is no race in the municipal election. There are two three-year seats being contested in this year’s election, and incumbent Fort Lee Councilmen Joseph Cervieri, Jr. and Harvey Sohmer are the only two names on the primary ballot. However the local Republican race is a little more complicated. The ballot has three names: Thomas Bennett and Peter B. Campbell, who are running together, and Rossana Surace, who is running alone. Campbell though says that if he wins on Tuesday, he’s likely to drop out of the race, and that if Surace were to win, he would gladly endorse her. “My name …
