1/21/20 Dumont, NJ – Dumont Mayor Andrew LaBruno and Dumont Council President Carole Stewart announced the selection of Christopher Tully of Bergenfield, NJ, for the position of Borough Administrator and Issa Ahmad Abbasi of Mahwah, NJ for the position of part-time Chief Financial Officer.
Tully currently serves as a personnel administrator for the County of Bergen and represents the 38th Legislative District in the New Jersey General Assembly. Before his involvement in state and county government, he served seven years on neighboring Bergenfield, NJ’s Borough Council, and as District Director for United States Representative Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ 5th).
“Chris’ knowledge of government – municipal, county, state and federal – will be a great asset to this administration and the residents of Dumont,” said Mayor LaBruno. “Having known him for many years, I have always been impressed by his strong communications skills, ability to grasp complex issues, and commitment to constituent services. Bottom line, he gets it.”
Dumont Council President Carole Stewart added, “Chris is exactly what Dumont needs right now, an experienced and dedicated individual who can focus both on big and small problems. His sharp mind and ability to learn quickly will serve us well.” Tully will pursue municipal management certifications during his personal time.
Abbasi currently serves as the Chief Financial Officer for the Township of Teaneck, NJ. Prior to his current position, Abbasi joined the Township in 2010 as an executive assistant and quickly rose to the position of Acting-Township Clerk then Township Clerk until his appointment as CFO in 2019. He is a graduate of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey and holds a Master’s in Public Administration, and is a Registered Municipal Clerk and Certified Municipal Financial Officer.
“Issa’s rapid career advancement and certification represent exactly what we are looking for in filling these key positions. His ability to grasp the Borough’s finances and administer them efficiently will be for Dumont taxpayers’ benefit,” said Mayor LaBruno. Council President Stewart added, “Ensuring that every penny of Dumont’s roughly $20m annual budget is accounted for is no small task. I’m confident Issa’s up for the job and will serve our residents well.”
Resolutions appointing Tully and Abbasi will be on tonight’s Borough Council meeting to be held in the Dumont Senior Center located at 37 Dumont Avenue, Dumont, NJ, at 6:30 PM.

The Borough of Dumont must unfortunately announce the postponement of our fall sports programs. The Dumont Recreation Commission recently voted not to move forward with fall sports based on the current state guidelines and restrictions on youth sports believing it will be impossible to fully incorporate these regulations. After this vote, The Borough of Dumont in coordination with our legal counsel and risk manager, citing borough liability and reports of COVID-19 outbreaks throughout youth sports leagues, determined that it is not possible to manage a safe sports program this fall. We understand many will be disappointed but please know our top priority during the COVID-19 public health crisis has been the safety and well-being of our community. Please continue to follow us for updates as we remain committed to providing recreational programs where possible for the benefit of our Dumont family.
