EUSTACE TAKES OATH OF OFFICE AS NEWEST MEMBER OF GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Former Maywood Mayor Will Now Represent 38th Legislative District

Assemblyman Tim Eustace received the oath of office from Assembly Speaker Sheila Oliver on Tuesday to become one of the newest members of the General Assembly, representing the 38th legislative district, which includes Bergenfield, Fair Lawn, Glen Rock, Hasbrouck Heights, Hawthorne, Lodi, Maywood, New Milford, Oradell, Paramus, River Edge, Rochelle Park, and Saddle Brook.

Eustace, 55, won a full term to the Assembly in the general election in November, filling the seat that had been vacated by the retirement of Assemblywoman Joan Voss. He joins Assemblywoman Connie Wagner in representing the residents of the 38th district.

“This is a tremendous honor and I am eager to roll up my sleeves and get to work,” said Eustace (D-Bergen). “Having spent many years volunteering and serving as an elected official in Bergen County, I’ve gained first hand knowledge of the issues that are important to the residents of the 38th district and I look forward to representing their needs in Trenton.

Eustace received a Doctor of Chiropractic from Pennsylvania College of Chiropractic in 1985 and has been in private practice since 1986. He is currently the chiropractor on staff for the Retired Actor’s Home in Englewood, Harrison House in Paramus and the Bergen/Passaic AIDS Consortium.

Throughout his career he has devoted his personal time to a wide variety of public and civic duties. He was elected Mayor of Maywood in 2007, prior to which he had served several terms as a councilman and one as council president. In this capacity he helped secure millions of dollars in grants to enhance the borough’s parks, revitalize its downtown and undertake local green initiatives. He will bring his experience providing effective local management and holding the line on taxes to the state Assembly.

He has also served as President of the Maywood Chamber of Commerce from 1986 to 2010, and as a member of the Maywood Rotary, the Bergen County Special Services Board of Education, Ramapo College Theoretical and Applied Science Alumni Advisory Board, and the Friends of Life.

Tim currently resides in Maywood with his partner of 31 years, Kevin, and their two adopted sons, Kyle and Corey.
