Ghassali 51, a two term Montvale Councilman announced his intention to run for Montvale Mayor challenging the current incumbent republican mayor for the seat in the November general election as a conservative independent candidate. “I believe I have the best combination of leadership experience, skills, creativity and ambition to lead Montvale forward during this next era of prosperity and challenges,” Ghassali says.
