Peter, who has served on the governing body for more than four years, is currently Council President.

A resident of Cliffside Park for more than 50 years, Peter has used a wealth of business experience he’s garnered as Executive Vice President of Calabrese Realty and a Director of Mariner’s Bank to enable the borough to consistently earn a AA+ credit rating from Standard & Poors.

In addition to his professional career, Peter serves as the Chairman of the Cliffside Park Housing Authority and previously served as the tax assessor for the borough.  His in depth experience in real estate and development has led to past appointments to the planning boards for Bergen County and Cliffside Park.
