Council Woman Mrs. Connie Wagner

Connie Wagner
My life has been devoted to my family, education and the community of Paramus.  I graduated from Trenton State College in 1970 as a Social/English education major.  Within two weeks of graduating college, I married my husband Richard and we have been married for the past 34 years.  We have three children: Robert, John and Michelle.  My husband and I moved to Paramus in 1974 and we have remained at the same address: 425 Gregory Road.  We fell in love with a small ranch and we have added on as the family grew.  We love the neighborhood and we never had the urge to move.

The Meaning of the Name - Paramus


turkey.gifThe Lenni Lenape Indians gave this land its name. One of the earliest written versions of the name in 1708 called it Parames. Later it was referred to as Perampsus. Experts on the Lenni Lenape language say that Perampsus means literally "where there is worthwhile or fertile land". Where there was fertile land, maize or corn was grown and wild turkeys were also found in abundance. Thus, the meaning of Paramus . . . "A fertile land where corn was grown attracting wild turkeys".
