MOUNT OLIVE, NEW JERSEY - U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie visited Mount Olive Township today to administer the oath of office to Mayor David Scapicchio and council members Phil Tobey, Colleen Labow, and newcomer Alex Roman.
The swearing in ceremony was held in Council Chambers in the Mount Olive Municipal Building at 4:00pm today.
Mayor David Scapicchio(R) was originally sworn to office by U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie after Mayor Richard DeLaRoche(D) was recalled in 2006. This will be Scapicchio's first full four year term as mayor.
Scapicchio and Christie both ran for Morris County Freeholder in 1994, but the duo have been friends since high school.
Councilman Phil Tobey(R) was sworn into his first full four year term. Tobey was appointed by Council to complete the remainder of the unexpired term of Councilman John Biondi in March of 2007. Biondi retired for personal reasons, and endorsed Tobey as his replacement. Tobey was then elected to council during the general election last November.
Councilwoman Colleen Labow(R) was re-elected and sworn into her second four year term.
Newcomer Councilman Silvio "Alex" Roman(R) was sworn into his first four year term replacing Councilman James Buell(D).
