Democrats assumed control of the Lumberton Township Committee tonight after winning a 3-2 majority last November by just nine votes.
State Sen. Troy Singleton (D-Delran) swore in Rue Ryan to her seat on the township committee tonight. Ryan defeated Deputy Mayor Kristin Januseski, 1,517 to 1,508.
Ryan Tuno was sworn in as mayor by State Sen. Dawn Addiego (D-Evesham). He replaces Sean Earlen, the Burlington County Republican Chairman, who remains on the township committee.
Tuno and fellow Democrat Kendra Hatfield won two seats in the 2018 general election.
Democratic Municipal Chair Randy Brolo told the New Jersey Globe that Rep. Andy Kim (D-Marlton) would also attend the swearing in.
