Bucco sworn into remaining year of Senate term

By Nikita Biryukov, January 11 2021 2:30 pm

State Sen. Anthony M. Bucco (R-Boonton) was sworn into the remaining year of his late father’s term Monday.

Bucco first won the seat in 2019, after State Sen. Anthony R. Bucco (R-Boonton) died of a heart attack.

Then running for his seat in the Assembly, Bucco won re-election but gave the post in the lower chamber. It went instead to Assemblywoman Aura Dunn (R-Mendham), who ran for the seat in the primary.

Dunn was also re-election to the remaining year of the Assembly term in November.

The saga means Bucco, should he seek re-election as expected, will have run in four elections in just two years, or five if the Republican primary for the 25th district’s seat is included in the count.
