The new Republican mayor of Frelinghuysen Township has picked a Democratic congressman to swear him in.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) will administer the oath of office this afternoon to Christopher Stracco.

Stracco, 56, has served on the Frelinghuysen Township Committee since 2012 and spent ten years on the zoning board before that.  He ran unopposed for re-election in 2018.

He is a partner at Pitney Day, specializing in environmental ad land use law.  His firm, originally Pitney Hardin, is where U.S. Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. practiced before Gov. Alfred Driscoll nominated him to the New Jersey Superior Court in 1949.

The Warren County municipality (pop. 2,230) was named after Theodorus Jacobus Frelinghuysen, the great-grandfather of the great-great-great uncle of former Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-Harding).

Gottheimer is seeking re-election to a third term this year in a district that includes Frelinghuysen and most of Sussex County.
