U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) administered the oath of office for Haworth Mayor Heather Wasser and Councilwoman Jacqueline Guénégo.
“It’s dedicated public servants — like the many Haworth is so fortunate to have — who are what keep our streets paved, communities safe, water clean, taxes down, and businesses thriving. Those being sworn in today will take a solemn oath. Through the power of one of our most significant responsibilities, the ability to vote, the Haworth community came together and elected you to not just guide them through trying times but to lead them into better ones, and to help lead North Jersey forward,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5).
Gottheimer said, “From all that Heather has done in her two terms as councilwoman, one thing is certain: she cares very deeply about Haworth. During her time on Council and during the pandemic, Heather has worked to ensure community members are safe and cared for. I am certain that Heather will continue making positive impacts everywhere she looks.”
Gottheimer added, “Jackie has touched every facet of our community through her roles as a volunteer, community organizer, small business owner, and an all-around incredible public official. She isn’t afraid to work across the aisle — enabling the Council to be one of the most effective and productive that Haworth has ever seen. I know that Jackie will continue working to make Haworth and North Jersey an even greater place to live.”
Gottheimer was joined by Bergen County Commissioner Tracy Zur, Bergen County Sheriff Anthony Cureton, Haworth Councilmembers Glenn Poosikian, Andrew Rosenberg, Dina Siciliano, Lisa Dhamija, Rabbi David Kirscher of Temple Emanu-El, and dozens of members of the North Jersey community.
