The Best Strategy

Passaic County Freeholder T.J. Best is moving ahead with his 2014 Paterson mayoral plans.

Best was spotted today hunched up at a table in battle mode with Manhattan-based political consultant Andre Richardson.

Best is one of several candidates for mayor, including incumbent Mayor Jeff Jones, Ward 5 Councilman Andre Sayegh, former Mayor Jose “Joey” Torres, and former Ward 2 Councilman Aslon Goow.

The contest now is defined mostly by who can get closest to kingmaker Assemblyman Benji Wimberly (D-35), whose presence on the 2014 ticket helped propel Jones to victory.
