Tedesco Statement on Sheriff Saudino

(Hackensack) – The following is a statement from Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco:

“The Sheriff’s comments were indefensible, and it was clear he could no longer serve the people of Bergen County effectively.  We cannot and must not tolerate discrimination from anyone, let alone our elected officials.  Bergen County’s diversity is our strength and my administration works every day to ensure inclusion within County government and throughout our 70 municipalities.  I have been in contact with state and local officials to ensure a smooth transition.  I do not believe the Sheriff’s comments reflect the values of the men and women of the Sheriff’s Department who work hard to keep our communities safe.”
