and Councilman Bernard Fontana

Mayor Gerald Calabrese Councilman Thomas Calabrese

Tom is a lifelong resident of Cliffside Park. He has served on Cliffside Park’s council since 2001 and is presently the council president.  With his election to the council, Tom has brought energy and vigor to the community’s youth and senior citizen programs.  Serving as liaison to the Recreation Department is a natural fit for Councilman Calabrese. Tom was an All-County, All-State, and All-American basketball player for Cliffside Park High School.  He then went on to play for the legendary Hall of Fame coach, Lou Carnesecca at St. John’s University.  He was the team captain in 1979 and led the team to the final eight.  At St. John’s Tom received his B.S. in Athletic Administration.  In 2002, Tom was named to the Cliffside Park Hall of Fame.  Recently, he was named to the Bergen Record’s All Century Team.  Tom knows that sports are an important outlet for our youth and, therefore, devotes much of his time to improving the facilities and programs that benefit our community.  Tom has also helped to maintain and improve the beautiful parks and grounds of our community.  He is a salesman for Fedway Associates for 27 years and an active member of the Cliffside Park Elks Club and Humane Society.  Tom and his family are active parishioners at Epiphany Church.  He resides on Oncrest Terrace with his wife Donna, and their children Nina and Thomas.
