U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) joined dozens of North Jersey community leaders at Bergen County Executive James Tedesco’s swearing-in ceremony and delivered remarks recognizing County Executive Tedesco’s work for North Jersey families.

The ceremony marked the beginning of Tedesco’s third consecutive term as Bergen County Executive, tying the county’s record. 

“Jim is not only a model public servant, but service is in his bones. Anybody who knows Jim, feels the warmth and commitment that he exudes when you’re with him. He doesn’t think about anything else except what he can do to help other people, and that is a remarkable thing. Today, we are celebrating his swearing-in, but really what we are doing is celebrating a tireless fighter for people. A believer in common sense over extremism. Somebody who really fights and looks out for our families as much as he looks out for his own family. So, thank you, Jim,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5).

Gottheimer continued, “Jim, you’ve made this County a better place to live, to work, to go to school, to get support for a mental health issue, and for our veterans and homeless. There is no county like Bergen County. Kennedy once said: ‘things don’t just happen,’ and I think that really catches Jim in a phrase. You don’t just wake up, and everything runs smoothly. All of this doesn’t just happen by accident. You have to be willing to work across party lines and with people from all backgrounds to make sure that everything comes together, that’s the mission. Jim’s ensured that we have top-tier public schools, safe communities, picturesque main streets and small businesses, family-friendly parks, clean waterways, and so much more. So Jim, thank you for having our backs.”

Gottheimer was also joined by Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. (NJ-9), United States District Judge Julian Neals, Bergen County Executive James Tedesco, Bergen County Commissioners Mary Amoroso, Ramon Hache, Germaine Ortiz, Thomas Sullivan, Steven Tanelli, and Joan Voss, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella, Bergen County Sheriff Anthony Cureton, Bergen County Administrator Thomas Duch, Reverend Michael Sheehan, Rabbi Arthur Weiner, and Bergen County Clerk John Hogan.
