A lifelong Oradell resident, Roger Tashjian has always given back to the community. "Our goal for Oradell is to put it at the top of the list for people who are looking for places to live. This means providing first class municipal services to our current residents in line with the taxes they pay. I have chosen to raise my family in Oradell because of the experience I had growing up in town and wish for my children to feel the same way about the town they call home."
