COUNCILMAN MUSCHAL DOUBLES DOWN ON SUPPORT FOR FIGUEROA KETTENBURG
Says She Represents the Future
(Trenton) – South Ward Councilman George Muschal today reiterated his strong support for South Ward Council candidate, Jenna Figueroa Kettenburg, saying she’s the future.
“Once again, I am announcing my full endorsement for Jenna Figueroa Kettenburg as the candidate to take my seat and represent our South Ward,” said George Muschal, who is retiring from public office in January. “As a neighbor and friend, I can attest to her character and professional skills, she’s the future of Trenton.”
Figueroa Kettenburg, a native South Ward resident, was raised on Lamberton Street. She’s a graduate of Trenton High School, where she now serves as an executive board member of the TCHS Alumni Association. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Rutgers University and her Masters degree from Boston University.
Figueroa Kettenburg has over 17 years of professional experience as a Principal Investigator for the New Jersey State Office of the Public Defender. She is now the Supervisor of Investigations for the Conflict Investigations Unit with the Department of Children and Families.
“I’m honored to have Councilman Muschal’s support,” said Jenna Figueroa Kettenburg. “George is a force of nature and no one will be able to fill his shoes, but I will certainly try.”
Figueroa Kettenburg is a former Executive Board member of the Latino Merchant’s Association and was a member of the Kinder Smile Board. She conducted extensive outreach throughout the City of Trenton for the Mercer County 2020 Census program. She participated in meal distributions during the height of the pandemic, as well as dozens of local, community clean ups.
Most recently, during the 2021 holiday season, Figueroa Kettenburg coordinated a Rusling Street Fire Clothing Drive.
“Jenna’s platform stresses public safety, including bridging the gap between law enforcement and residents, as well as taking responsibility to provide clean and safe drinking water for residents of the South Ward,” said Councilman Muschal.
