Moonachie (; ) is a borough in Bergen County, New Jersey, in the Hackensack River watershed. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 2,708,[7][8][9] reflecting a decline of 46 (-1.7%) from the 2,754 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 63 (-2.2%) from the 2,817 counted in the 1990 Census.[18]

Moonachie was incorporated as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 11, 1910, from portions of Lodi Township, based on the results of a referendum held on May 3, 1910. On March 26, 1917, portions of Moonachie were taken to form Teterboro.[19] Legend is that Moonachie was named after Monaghie, a chief of the Native Americans who inhabited the local cedar forests.[20][21]

The name of the borough is typically pronounced "moo-NAH-kee;" however, in January 1987, then-Mayor of New York City Ed Koch pronounced it "mah-NOO-chee" when he made his now-famous quip that the New York Giants should hold their victory parade in the borough after the team had just won Super Bowl XXI. Koch had refused to grant the Giants permission to hold a parade within the city limits because the team plays its home games in New Jersey, not in New York City.[22]

Government

Local government

Moonachie is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government. The governing body consists of a Mayor and a Borough Council comprising six council members, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council consists of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[3] The Borough form of government used by Moonachie, the most common system used in the state, is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[36][37]

As of 2015, the mayor of Moonachie is Democrat Dennis Vaccaro, whose term of office ends December 31, 2018. Members of the Borough Council are Robert J. Bauer, Sr. (D, 2016), Antonio Cirillo (D, 2017), Kathy Kinsella (D, 2016), Manuel Martinez, Jr. (D, 2017), Lucille A. Millar (D, 2015) and Bruce Surak (D, 2015).[5][38][39][40][41][42][43]

Federal, state and county representation

Moonachie is located in the 9th Congressional District[44] and is part of New Jersey's 36th state legislative district.[8][45][46]

New Jersey's Ninth Congressional District is represented by Bill Pascrell (D, Paterson).[47] New Jersey is represented in the United States Senate by Cory Booker (D, Newark, term ends 2021)[48] and Bob Menendez (D, Paramus, 2019).[49][50]

The 36th District of the New Jersey Legislature is represented in the State Senate by Paul Sarlo (D, Wood-Ridge) and in the General Assembly by Marlene Caride (D, Ridgefield) and Gary Schaer (D, Passaic).[51] The Governor of New Jersey is Chris Christie (R, Mendham Township).[52] The Lieutenant Governor of New Jersey is Kim Guadagno (R, Monmouth Beach).[53]
