Elizabeth, NJ - Senate President Steve Sweeney, Senator Nicholas Scutari and Senator Joseph Cryan participated in the Union County reorganization meeting, where they addressed the newly re-elected Union County Freeholders and Union County Surrogate.
“I offer my congratulations to all Union County officials and wish them the best as they begin 2020,” said Senator Sweeney (D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland). “It is a privilege to serve in public office and, as a former Freeholder, I know that serving at the county level is among the most rewarding public service anyone can provide. Counties all across the state are finding creative solutions to longtime issues related to efficiencies and affordability and I look forward to seeing what the leadership in Union County will be able to accomplish in the years to come.”
Union County Freeholders Bette Jane Kowalski, Sergio Granados, and Rebecca Williams, and Union County Surrogate James LaCorte were all re-elected this past November.
“The day an elected official is sworn-in is always a special day,” said Senator Scutari (D-Middlesex/Somerset/Union). “I am proud to be a lifelong resident of Union County, where we have great elected officials who work hard to better their communities throughout our county. They have the trust of the residents in Union County, and I wish them much continued success in the New Year.”
“This is one of the highlights of the year,” said Senator Cryan (D-Union). “When newly elected and re-elected officials pledge there commitment to serve the public, their towns, their counties and their communities. There is a lot of work we have yet to do in Union County and I look forward to working with those who swore-in today to make our county better, safer and more equal for all our residents in the years to come.”
