“Being prepared for any situation, but especially in an emergency, gives professionals added confidence to do his or her job well” said County Clerk Danielle Ireland-Imhof. “Mr. Randisi and his team equipped our municipal clerks with the tools to further enhance their emergency preparedness to ensure we keep our elections processes safe and secure for voters and election workers”.

The Passaic County Election Offices are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Mr. Randisi and his staff and remain committed to offering future workshops to support Passaic County’s municipal clerks.
