JNEWS: Pegel, Andrena ‘Andie’ [MC????] seeks West Milford Township Councll


Republican Pegel seeks support for town council
Published Oct 19, 2017 at 1:21 pm (Updated Oct 19, 2017)

To the Editor:

My name is Andrena “Andie” Pegel and I am proud to announce my candidacy for West Milford Town Council on Republican Row A this November 7. I am a proud 21-year resident of West Milford with my husband, Tom, where we have raised our three children: Tommy (20), Gregory (19), and Allie (14) in the Newfoundland section of town.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Manhattan College, I entered the corporate work force and then started a small insurance business in Passaic County with my husband. Through the years, I have volunteered in West Milford in numerous capacities, from civic groups to youth athletic organizations to serving on the local multiple town committees. I currently serve on the Economic Development Commission, Insurance Advisory Committee, Community Against Substance Abuse Committee, Republican Committee (District 2), and as Vice President of the local Republican Club.

It is an honor to be chosen by the duly elected district representatives of the Republican Committee. These local leaders have entrusted me with the responsibility to represent all West Milford Republicans on the ballot this November, which is a task I do not take lightly. I am excited to work with my running mate Tricia Gerst, winner of the Republican primary election in June, and Councilmen McGuinness, Signorino, and Wagner to continue to make financially sound business decisions in our community.

I look forward to continuing to get to know my fellow West Milford residents over the next few weeks and hearing the concerns affecting my friends and neighbors in our great community. I know that my experience as a professional, volunteer, parent, and taxpayer provide me with a solid foundation to lead our township.

On Nov. 7, I humbly ask for your support by voting for Tricia Gerst and me, Andie Pegel, for Council, and the rest of Republican Row A.

Andie Pegel
Republican Council Candidate
West Milford Township

George Beamon will shine at Worcester Wolves, says boss Paul James

GEORGE Beamon will be a “key” cog in Worcester Wolves’ system this season, according to head coach Paul James.

The American, who can fill in at guard or forward, was the last player to join up with Wolves ahead of the new campaign as visa and work permit issues delayed his arrival.

But James insisted it was worth the wait as he believes Beamon will be a “shining” light for the British Basketball League outfit.

JNEWS: Del Russo, Maria [MC2012] lived in this rundown nasty apartment


from Refinery29
Inside The $1800/Month Studio Of This R29 Staffer Refinery29 – 2 hours ago

What’s the worst place you’ve lived?

“I lived in a disgusting apartment my junior and senior year of college. I went to Manhattan College up in the Bronx, and I lived in this rundown nasty apartment. We had mice, cockroaches. It was the worst of New York City real estate, and I got it out of the way very early. At the time, I was only paying $500 a month in rent because it was a three-bedroom apartment that I was sharing with four other girls. One girl had her own bedroom, and then the remaining two bedrooms had two girls in them. So there were five of us, sharing one and a half bathrooms. It was disgusting.”

Did living with four other girls ruin roommates for you?

“No, it was my last roommate. She got us evicted because she didn’t pay two months of our rent. After that I had given her my check and I said, here, you send in the rent this month, and the checks never got to the landlord. So she got us illegally evicted, I might add — they just changed the locks on us one day.

“After that I was like, I don’t want to rely on anyone else and I’ll tell people that the only person I’ll live with now is a guy next. I will not live with another girl. I won’t live with anyone else who is not a romantic partner. I just know what I like and I feel like the only person I’m willing to be flexible with is someone who I’m going to spend the rest of my life with, or someone who I love and who gives me good sex. That’s someone I’m willing to be flexible with.”

And they’re likely to be flexible with you.

“Exactly. And I feel like it’s a situation where you are more able to communicate your needs rather than a friendship. Friendships can get tricky sometimes.”
