Belleville Sees Historic Change in Upcoming Town Council

 

BELLEVILLE, NJ – With the results of the Belleville May Municipal Election being certified by Essex County Clerk Christopher J. Durkin, the #BelieveInBelleville Team gives thanks to the community for 2 landslide victories.

 

Both Former Belleville Board of Education Trustee Frank Vélez & current Belleville Board of Education Trustee Tracy Juanita Williams-Muldrow were elected to the 2nd and 1st Ward Council seats respectively, winning 13/14 voting districts in which they competed.

 

“Despite the deck being stacked against us, the voters of the 1st & 2nd Wards have sent a clear message: It’s time for a change,” said 2nd Ward Councilman-Elect Vélez.

 

“From doing more for special needs families like mine, to standing up for our seniors and children, Tracy and I will continue to be independent voices for ALL Belleville families,” he added.

 

The #BelieveInBelleville Team made history on a number of fronts.

 

Councilman-Elect Frank Vélez is the youngest elected Belleville Councilman in history at 22 years of age, as well as the first Hispanic male ever elected to the Council.

 

Councilwoman-Elect Tracy Juanita Williams-Muldrow is the first African American ever elected to the Council.

 

Both candidates will also be the first new Councilmembers for their wards in 20 years.

 

Additionally, both candidates overcame the support of the entire Council & Mayor for their opponents.

 

The #BelieveInBelleville Team rendered services from Vital Media Relations, with Patrick Baselice serving as the primary campaign consultant, and Nicholas Scotti as field director.
