Assemblyman Troy Singleton, who was sworn in last week to serve his first full term in the General Assembly, has been appointed by Speaker Sheila Oliver to serve on three integral committees – Budget, Commerce and Economic Development, and Education.
“I’m grateful that our leadership has the confidence to entrust me with these responsibilities,” said Singleton (D-Burlington/Camden). “Each and every one of these committees handles issues that are paramount to working class families. I’m looking forward to being a productive part of the solution to improving our public education system and reinvigorating our economy to help end the unemployment stalemate.”
Singleton holds a Bachelor’s degree in business administration and finance from Rowan University and has served as policy chief for the Carpenter’s Union where he consistently focused on initiatives that support middle class families and hard working taxpayers.
“Having served as a chief policy advisor to our former Speaker, Troy has long been a part of the solution, even before he was an elected official,” said Assembly Majority Leader Lou Greenwald (D-Camden/Burlington). “I know he has the knowledge and know-how to identify smart policy and turn it into a workable plan.”
Assembly committees for the 215th legislature will begin meeting on January 30.
