WOODLAND PARK — Governor Corzine came to what used to be West Paterson on Thursday to swear in Democratic Mayor Pat Lepore, who, in his fourth term, is now mayor of Woodland Park.

The borough’s name change from West Paterson to Woodland Park became official Jan. 1. Corzine noted that both names have the same initials and used the initials in speaking of the borough and praising Lepore.

“W.P. has a lot of tough choices to make and you have to have people you trust making those decisions,” Corzine said.

The governor delivered an optimistic New Year’s message. Despite tough economic times, he predicted New Jerseyans will prevail in 2009.

“This is a great country and we will be able to turn the top,” Corzine said, addressing a crowd of roughly 150 people.

The Democratic governor was surrounded by Democratic leaders, including Passaic County Democratic Party Chairman John Currie and Assemblyman Tom Giblin, of Clifton. They all gathered in the municipal building of the newly renamed borough.

“The nation has faced tough times in the past. We’ve always come through these and we’ve been stronger because we’ve worked together,” Corzine said.

After Lepore took the oath of office, the crowd sang “Happy birthday, governor!” to Corzine, who celebrated his 62nd birthday on Thursday.

After the ceremony, Corzine said his New Year’s resolutions for 2009 were to “get the economy going and stabilize the best we can. And stabilize the world for our citizens.”

When asked why he chose to come to Woodland Park out of the Garden State’s 566 municipalities, he said, he wanted to support Lepore, who has to contend with a fair share of disgruntled residents who opposed the borough’s name change. NorthJersey.com
