Murphy, Sweeney swear in Evesham officials

By Nikita Biryukov, January 02 2019 6:38 pm

Newly-elected Evesham Democratic officials were sworn in by some of New Jersey’s top Democrats Wednesday.

Gov. Phil Murphy swore in Mayor Jaclyn Veasy and Councilwoman Patricia Hansen. Senate President Steve Sweeney swore in Councilwoman Heather Cooper, whom the council elected to be deputy mayor.

“This is one of the most consequential communities in our state, both in its size, it’s heft — it punches above its weight,” Murphy said. “Not just in this part and not just in Burlington County … but in this region, and its impact is felt far from here.”

Veasy defeated Republican Councilman Steve Zeuli, whom Republicans chose as their mayoral candidate after former Mayor Randy Brown withdrew from the race.

Cooper and Hansen defeated former Councilwoman Deborah Hackman and Jay Levenson.
