On November 8th, I was re-elected to a 4th three year term as a Bergen County Freeholder. Against some long odds (for our party got its clocked cleaned last year, losing three freeholder seats, the county executive and the sheriff), I ran for reelection and we swept on a county-wide basis: two freeholders, the Surrogate Judge and the County Clerk.
As you may know, Bergen County is larger in population than six states (five plus D.C.), and freeholders run at large in the county with 70 towns and a population over 900,000 people. Of course, I still practice law in NY and have found time to write a number of books on a variety of topics over the last couple of years.
In January, though in the minority, I will be the freeholder with greatest longevity (10 years). Though this has been a busy year campaigning, I wrote a book for Krause Investing in precious metals (gold, sliver, platinum and palladium) that will be out December 27th) and am working on one for Zyrus on national parks that will be out early next year. I believe that these will be my 32nd and 33rd books or book-length topics.
Congratulations to David for his success, and his long career as a numismatic author.
