(TRENTON) – Northfield City Mayor Vince Mazzeo has been sworn in as the newest representative of the 2nd Legislative District in the New Jersey General Assembly.
Mazzeo took his oath of office during the Assembly’s reorganization meeting on Tuesday.
“I am grateful to the voters who entrusted me with the opportunity to serve them in the legislature,” said Mazzeo (D-Atlantic). “As Mayor of Northfield, I have worked tirelessly to give residents a transparent and open government that strives to preserve our quality of life and save taxpayers money. Now as an Assemblyman, I’ll do the same, working with my colleagues in the Legislature for the betterment of Atlantic County and its residents.”
Mazzeo was elected to the Northfield City Council in 2003, and subsequently as mayor in 2007. He has been an advocate for smaller, smarter government during his tenure, pursuing shared service opportunities with neighboring communities that are saving taxpayer dollars and ensuring a more efficient delivery of vital services. Mazzeo has also been a driving force in efforts to preserve open space, securing the funding to build what will soon become Northfield Veterans Park.
As a small business leader, Mazzeo has been a part of his family’s fruit and produce business, B.F. Mazzeo, for nearly 30 years. He is also a former member and past president of the Pleasantville Kiwanis Club. A graduate of Glassboro State College (now Rowan University), Mazzeo and his wife, Gerri, have been married for 24 years. They have two children, Amanda and Ted.
The 2nd district includes Absecon, Atlantic City, Brigantine, Buena, Buena Vista, Egg Harbor City, Egg Harbor Township, Folsom, Hamilton (Atlantic), Linwood, Longport, Margate City, Mullica, Northfield, Pleasantville, Somers Point and Ventnor City.
