NORTH WILDWOOD — Four City Council members took the oath of office at the city's annual reorganization meeting Tuesday, Jan. 2 at the City Government Office, 901 Atlantic Ave.
“This has been a great four years, and it’s the people that make it so special,” said Mayor Patrick Rosenello, who has served on the council for 14 years. “We’re here to work for the people.”
Ward 2 Councilman Joseph Rullo congratulated the members sworn into office Tuesday evening.
“It’s great keeping this council together, and doing great things for the city,” he said.
North Wildwood has the city form of government, said City Clerk Scott Jett. The mayor is elected and serves a four-year term. The council member-at-large serves a two-year term, and ward council members serve three-year terms.
There is an election every year, and council terms are staggered, Jett said.
Municipal Court Judge Louis J. Belasco administered the oath of office to Mayor Patrick Rosenello, 2nd Ward Councilwoman Kellyann Tolomeo, 1st Ward Councilman David Del Conte, and Councilman at Large Edwin Koehler.
They rejoined 1st Ward Councilwoman Margaret A. Bishop, Councilman James F. Kane, 2nd Ward Councilman Joseph Rullo and Councilman Salvatore T. Zampirri Sr.
Zampirri was re-elected council president, and Tolomeo was re-elected president pro tempore.
