Race for Bergen County Executive

The race between incumbent Dennis McNerney - Democrat, and Bergen County Clerk Kathe Donovan -the Republican challenger was contentious and empassioned. I spent time over the course of two weeks with both candidates, and did this documentary piece that focuses not only on the campaign, but also what each candidates hopes to accomplish.

THE RABBI & THE MINISTER

Rabbi Israel "Sy" Dresner forged a Civil-Rights era alliance with Martin Luther King, Jr. Retired now and in his 80's, Dresner has an interesting story to tell about his relationship with King. He was an insider in the movement, and has a unique perspective that's pretty remarkable. Recently, he sat down with reporter Jen Cunningham and myself and recanted the time in his life when he would rally local clergy and make trips from Jersey down south, with the intention of getting arrested in acts of civil disobedience. He remembered with fine detail and excitement his role in the movement, reading a letter he received from King that he wrote from the St. Augustine, FL jail. He kept the letter, keeps a copy framed on his wall, along with some photos of him with King. he says Kind was the greatest person he ever met -and he's met some important world figures. His pride is apparent. Take a look. Read more.
