Biography
Pasquale "Pat" Lepore was first elected to the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders in 2004 and subsequently reelected in 2007 and 2010. His past service includes four terms as the Mayor of Woodland Park and a term on the Borough Council.

Growing up in Paterson, Freeholder Lepore graduated from St. Joseph’s High School in 1969. He and his wife Linda are proud to call the Borough of Woodland Park their home for the past four decades. Upon election to the Freeholder Board, he retired as a Sales Representative for the Entenmann’s Division of George Weston Bakeries. He remains a member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) Union Local 802 located in Long Island City, New York. Their son Robert is a veteran of United States Marine Corps. Robert continues his service to his community and country as a Police Officer in Woodland Park.

As Freeholder Lepore very proudly commented at his swearing-in ceremony: “My son’s public service far exceeds my own.”

Freeholder Lepore’s commitment to Passaic County has been recognized by many public, private and civic organizations. This includes service on the Woodland Park Planning Board, Municipal Alliance, the Alfred H. Baumann Library Board, The Office of Emergency Management, The West Paterson Boys & Girls Club, Passaic County Board of Social Services, Camp Hope Commission, and the Board of Education Bond Referendum Committee.

In 2013, Freeholder Lepore serves as the Chairman of the Law & Public Safety Committee and is a member of the Health & Education Committee and the Finance & Administration Committee. He is on the Passaic County Technical Institute and Passaic County Community College Board of School Estimate, which oversees both institutions’ budgets. .

Freeholder Lepore helped spearhead fiscal initiatives resulting in two credit upgrades to Passaic County’s bond ratings from Moody’s Financial Services, an independent credit rating agency. This has resulted in hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings on interest payments and debt service for Passaic County taxpayers. Freeholder Lepore’s fiscal stewardship has allowed our county government to rein in costs, increase efficiencies, and more effectively share services.
