Mahwah, A Great Place to Live

THANK YOU.

I wanted to take this time to simply say “Thank You” for supporting me throughout this election. Mahwah is a great place to live and we have accomplished many things. We are among the lowest taxes in Bergen County, Safest community in New Jersey, and among top 50 safest in the country, highly ranked school system, AAA Bond ratings from both Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s. The finest volunteers Mahwah EMS, Mahwah Fire Department & OEM, CERT Teams and a vibrant Senior Citizen program that ranks among the best in the State. Charitable organizations and Boards who dedicate their time to our children and community. It has been an honor to serve Mahwah for the last 5 years and look forward to working with the new Township Council so we can move these accomplishments to a greater place. Congratulations to all those elected who have chosen to serve our community.
– Mayor Bill Laforet

 
 

During hurricane Sandy, Mayor Laforet was everywhere, seeing to the needs of our community and communicating with residents around the clock. No community had it better.

About Our Mayor

 

My name is William “Bill’ Laforet, Mayor of the Township of Mahwah.

I am a businessman, not a politician and in an overwhelming majority, in 2011, the taxpayers said no more to 26% tax rate increases. We rolled up our sleeves and delivered on our promise, 1.75% tax rate increase the lowest in 11 years. Then we reviewed our debt and achieved the highest Bond rating Mahwah has ever received from Standard & Poor's a AAA bond rating, this allowed us to save $500,000 on the term of our debt. We opened Town Hall to residents in the first ever "Citizen's Blue Ribbon Panel," giving this community a complete access to our government. This takes leadership and a person who is willing to make tough decisions, that is why you sent me here. Not to be Mayor, but finally someone to do the job of being Mayor.  There are tough choices to be made and based on the achievements of the past 5 years, we think you will agree, there is more work to be done.
