Paterson, NJ – Nicolino “Nick” Gallo, longtime Totowa resident and successful self-made businessman, was sworn in this afternoon as the newest member of the Passaic County Board of Commissioners. Gallo becomes the first Republican elected to the Board of County Commissioners (formerly known as the Board of Chosen Freeholders) since the GOP won three seats in 2009.

Gallo stood with his wife, three children, mother and other family members as he was sworn in by 2021 GOP gubernatorial candidate Jack Ciattarelli at a well-attended event in the Commissioners’ meeting room.

“I want to thank my family, friends, fellow Republicans and everyone who has helped my campaign for your endless support throughout this process,” Gallo said after being sworn in. “I am thrilled at this opportunity to represent all residents of Passaic County in this new capacity.

Among those present were Ciattarelli, Sen. Kristin M. Corrado (R-40); County Commissioners Terry Duffy, Bruce James, Sandi Lazzara and Pat Lepore; County Administrator Anthony DeNova; Mayors John Lane of Hawthorne, Chris Vergano of Wayne and Michele Dale of West Milford; and Passaic County GOP Chair Peter Murphy and Vice Chair Joanie Walsh. Many council members and party officials up and down Passaic County witnessed Gallo being sworn in.

“On behalf of the Passaic County Republican Party, I am honored to welcome Nicolino Gallo as the new county commissioner,” said Chairman Murphy. “Nick brings a fresh perspective to the board as well as an unparalleled work ethic. He will be an excellent commissioner.

Gallo’s three-year tenure will run until the end of 2025.
