CHESTERFIELD, NJ -
Rita Romeu took the oath of office at a January Township Committee Meeting. Administering the oath of office was New Jersey State Assemblyman Herb Conaway.
A tie in the 2016 Chesterfield Township Committee Election left an empty seat on the board for less than a month, with Rita Romeu joining fellow newcomer Andrea Katz, who was sworn in back on January 2nd.
A decision by a judge to include 2 more votes from Chesterfield residents whose ballots did not originally count was all it took on January 25th to end the long standing tie between Democratic Candidate Rita Romeu and Republican Ron Kolczynski.
