Somerset County Democrats Re-Elect Schaffer and Christodoulou to Lead for Another Four Years

Vice Chair Schaffer takes a turn at the mic.

Following five years of unprecedented local, county, state and federal electoral success, the Somerset County Democrats voted today to reelect Peg Schaffer of Bedminster as Chair and Zenon Christodoulou of Branchburg as Vice Chair at the quadrennial reorganization convention.

“I am honored to be asked once again to lead the Somerset County Democrats and know that my success as Chair is due entirely to the hard work of the County Committee and all our volunteers,” Schaffer said to a packed conference room of over 200 people at Raritan Valley Community College. “Democrats have been able to flip towns, the county, state legislative seats and Congressional seats through hard work, great candidates, and good governance.”

Rounding out the party leadership for the coming term are Patti O’Byrne of Warren as Corresponding Secretary, Nancy D’Andrea of Bernards Township as Recording Secretary, and Mike Goldberg of Hillsborough as Parliamentarian.

The Somerset County Democrats’ ticket in 2022 includes County Clerk Steve Peter, the first Democrat to win county-wide elected office since 1979; Sheriff Darrin Russo, the only Democratic Somerset County Sheriff in modern memory; and Commissioner Melonie Marano, whose victory in 2019 gave the Democrats their first-ever majority on the then Freeholder – now Commissioner – Board.

“We made history over the past decade with Steve, Darrin, and Melonie, and we’re going to make more history when they are reelected this November,” said Christodoulou. “They’ve each proven in their time in office that they belong serving the people, and it’s our job as the County Committee to make sure the voters know it when they head to the polls.”
