State Sen. Troy Singleton (D-Delran) is leaving his post as director of operations for the Keystone Mountain Lakes Council of Carpenters for a new private sector opportunity.

“I’m forever indebted to the carpenters for all they have done to accelerate my professional and personal maturation,” Singleton said.  “There is no doubt that my time with the union has prepared me for this next step in my professional career and I am excited for what is next.”

Tomorrow is his last day at the powerful union where has worked for a dozen years.

“The truth is that while I am leaving to pursue a new professional opportunity, my ties and love for the Carpenters Union will not change,” said Singleton.

Singleton was elected to the Senate in 2017, flipping a seat Republicans had held for 20 years.  He served in the Assembly for more than eight years, and spent five years as an Assembly Democratic staffer.

He chairs the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee and has a seat on the Judiciary Committee.
