ESTELL MANOR — Mayor Joe Venezia will be sworn in at the city’s reorganization meeting Wednesday night.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers, 148 Cumberland Ave., with the regular meeting immediately following the reorganization.
The race between Independent Conservative Leadership candidate Venezia and incumbent Republican Mayor Stephen J. Teasenfitz ended Feb. 6 after a draw in November triggered a special election.
“I believe this was the only race in NJ that ended in a draw, and the longest ongoing election in NJ that ... finally reached the marathon finish line,” Venezia said in a written statement.
Venezia received 337 votes to Teasenfitz’s 334.
