Must Read: Melli on BCDO

Juan Melli, founder of Blue Jersey, announced in no uncertain terms he's arrived at Politicker with a great piece breaking down Joe Ferriero's grip on power in Bergen County.

Here's the juiciest morsel:
It's easiest to understand the starkness of the situation in terms of the raw numbers. While only 0.4 percent of the approximately 900,000 Bergen County residents work for the county government, a preliminary analysis shows that over 40 percent of the Democratic municipal chairs and legislative district leaders in the county hold government jobs. And for many, there is an unambiguous understanding that their job is contingent on Ferriero retaining power.

Good stuff...
