Orseck, Nogara Fend Off Fox's Glen Rock Council Bid

Glen Rock Republican pair easily dispatch Democrat challenger Howard Fox.

Incumbent Borough Council members Joan Orseck and Carmine Nogara cruised to a convincing victory over Democrat Howard Fox Tuesday night.

According to unofficial election results, Orseck and Nogara, the current council president, received 3,145 votes and 2,946 votes, respectively.

Fox, who also unsuccessfully ran for council in 2011, lagged behind with a tally of 2,110 votes.

"I am happy to be given the opportunity to serve the Borough for another three years," Nogara told Patch following the election night victory. "It was a pleasure running with Joan Orseck, who is a dedicated public servant and has worked hard for the Borough over the last six years. I look forward to tackling tough issues and trying to keep the tax burden at a minimum."

Orseck, a recently-retired nursing recruiter at Hackensack Univeristy Medical Center, thanked her constituents.

"Glen Rock is a wonderful town," Orseck said. "We can always do better and I will continue to be a part of a good, working council that will strive toward excellence... I am proud to serve Glen Rock."

Fox, the challenger, ran on a platform of rejiggering the borough's communication methods with residents. Using his experience in the public and private sectors, Fox said he'd be the man to reduce the number of corrective actions found in state budget audits.

Fox's election efforts fell flat against the unified ticket of Nogara and Orseck.

Both Republicans have supported construction of a new senior housing facility, modernized recreation facilities, exploration of shared services agreements and improved communication with residents.
