Campaign themes


In an interview with, Contella highlighted some of his major campaign issues.

  • Roche Property
Contella labelled the Roche property as his biggest concern. [2] The Roche Property currently houses the 127-acre campus of Swiss drug maker, Hoffman-LaRoche. The company announced in 2012 that it would be winding down operations at the site and closing the campus entirely by 2015. At its peak, the company had 10,000 employees. [3] An environmental remediation of the site is ongoing and the towns of Nutley and Clifton have formed a joint commission looking at the future development of the property. [4] Contella said during the interview that he envisions open space for the Roche site. "An open acre project would be awesome for kids after the [Roche] cleanup," he said. [2]
  • Washington Elementary overcrowding
"We don't need [more apartments]. I think we're at capacity because it's crowding our school," Contella said.[2]
  • Vocational programs
"I think if we can get into more vocational programs, there [will be] more jobs," Contella said.[2]
