Thank you again.
Nearly five years ago, The Lava Lounge opened up in quiet, working class area in South Paterson and quickly became a neighborhood nuisance. Billed as a night club for young adults to congregate, hastily succumbed to; excessively loud music, constant loitering, littering, and heaps of lewd acts. This establishment posed a threat as it continued to comprise the quality of life for the residents of South Paterson.
After losing countless nights of sleep, the neighbors contacted Paterson Councilman Andre Sayegh and swiftly decisive action was taken. With a clear goal in mind, Councilman Sayegh rallied the residents against the notorious night club, and brought forth an end to The Lava Lounge. Sadly, after years of peace and tranquility, The Lava Lounge surreptitiously reopened under the guise of a restaurant called the Dubai Lounge. After demonstrating that the new establishment was no different than its nefarious predecessor, Councilman Sayegh mobilized the members of the community once more, and the lounge was shut down.
Notwithstanding, The Councilman realized that unless he could find a more noble tenant for the property, another Lava Lounge could resurface. In order to avoid a repeat of the indecency, Councilman Sayegh reached out to a fellow Patersonian and preschool administrator, Dr. Brenda Belmont, if she would be interested in establishing a preschool at the previous site of the aforementioned nigh clubs. After she agreed, the two collaborated as a team. They partnered with the Paterson Public Schools to establish a preschool for the underserved 3 to 4 year old population living in South Paterson.
Thanks to the concerned constituents, the fire department, police department, the health department, the Paterson Public Schools and the Belmont family, the neighborhood can finally claim a victory for decency!

It is hard to believe that Election Day - Tuesday, May 13 - is only six days away! From the start, our campaign has been all about a positive vision for Paterson. I have a common sense, realistic plan to drive crime out of our neighborhoods. Cutting crime will improve the quality of life for every Patersonian and spur job growth and economic opportunity.
I am proud to say that The Record newspaper agrees with my vision and has endorsed me to become the next Mayor of Paterson. Here is some of what The Record has to say:
“Sayegh's track record to the people of the 6th Ward speaks for itself. He has tackled quality-of-life issues, in particular late-night lounges that were undermining stable residential neighborhoods. He has vowed to reactivate the Police Department's street crime unit, understanding how vital controlling crime is to boosting Paterson's image and its economy.”

This election means so much for the future of the city we love. We can only be victorious if you go out and vote. Please put Election Day - Tuesday, May 13 - on your calendars and tell your friends and family to do the same. VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
Your support and encouragement has been humbling and inspiring. Thank you so very much. Together, we will move forward as one people with one purpose for one Paterson. Together, we will win on May 13. #onepaterson
All the best.
More great news from the campaign front! Today, I am proud to announce that former police chief Lawrence Spagnola has endorsed my candidacy for Mayor of Paterson. Like me, Chief Spagnola knows that the most critical thing we can do to improve our quality of life, create jobs and spur economic growth is to tackle the crime problem that is plaguing our great city and preventing it from meeting its promise.
