Paterson, NJ — Longtime Totowa resident and successful self-made businessman Nicolino “Nick” Gallo was sworn in as the newest member of the Passaic County Board of County Commissioners this afternoon. Gallo becomes the first Republican elected to the Board of County Commissioners (formerly known as the Board of Chosen Freeholders) since the GOP won three seats in 2009.
Gallo stood with his wife, three children, mother and other family members as he was sworn in by 2021 GOP gubernatorial nominee Jack Ciattarelli at a well-attended event in the commissioners’ boardroom.
“I want to thank my family, my friends, my Republicans and everyone who has helped my campaign for their endless support throughout this process,” Gallo said after his swearing-in. “I am excited for this opportunity to represent all Passaic County residents in this new role.”
Among those in attendance were Ciattarelli, Senator Kristin M. Corrado (R-40); County Commissioners Terry Duffy, Bruce James, Sandi Lazzara and Pat Lepore; District Administrator Anthony DeNova; Mayor John Lane of Hawthorne, Chris Vergano of Wayne and Michele Dale of West Milford; and Passaic County GOP Chair Peter Murphy and Vice Chair Joanie Walsh. Scores of council members and party officials from across Passaic County witnessed Gallo take the oath of office.
“On behalf of the Passaic County Republican Party, I am honored to welcome Nicolino Gallo as our newest county commissioner,” said Chairman Murphy. “Nick brings a fresh perspective to the board and an unmatched work ethic. He will be an excellent inspector.”
Gallo’s three-year term runs until the end of 2025.
