(WOODLYNNE) – Last night, three brothers who each serve as elected officials in different positions throughout the region were honored. Assemblyman Angel Fuentes, Woodlynne Borough Mayor Jeraldo Fuentes, and Woodlynne Councilman Pablo Fuentes became part of history this past November when they all appeared on the same General Election ballot, winning their respective races.
“It was an honor to be able to run alongside my brothers and to be a part of this historic moment,” commented Assemblyman Angel Fuentes. “They are both hard working men who will join me in improving the lives of the residents of Woodlynne.”
Over 100 people attended the event, which was held at the Woodlynne Municipal Building. Each of the Fuentes brothers signed the ballot, which was then certified by the elected officials in attendance including Congressman Rob Andrews, Senator Donald Norcross, Assemblyman Gilbert “Whip” Wilson, Freeholder Rodney Greco and Deptford Mayor Paul Medany, as well as Woodlynne’s Borough Council. The ballot was then collected by the Camden County Historical Society and the Puerto Rican Community Archives housed at the NJHRIC (Newark Public Library’s New Jersey Hispanic Research and Information Center) at the Newark Public Library for display and preservation.
