NORTH BERGEN, NJ – Mayor/State Senator Nick Sacco is offering his congratulations and best wishes to John Brennan, a North Bergen native recently nominated by President Barack Obama for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.), an extremely prestigious position. Brennan grew up in North Bergen and attended St. Joseph of the Palisades High School in West New York before moving on to various positions in federal law enforcement, ultimately leading to his nomination.
“While I never knew John Brennan, I have heard from many people who did know him during his time in North Bergen that he is a high quality individual and an excellent representative of our township,” said Sacco. “I congratulate Mr. Brennan on this prestigious honor and wish him the best of luck in the confirmation process and continued success in working to keep our nation safe and secure.”
Brennan is not the first former North Bergen resident to rise to a top position in the federal government. He follows in the footsteps of Louis Freeh, who also grew up in North Bergen and attended St. Joseph’s in West New York before being nominated by President Bill Clinton for the position of Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (F.B.I.) and confirmed by the Senate. Freeh served in the position from 1993 to 2001.
