John Currie joins social services agency staff

Democratic State Chairman is new public information officer

John Currie, the Democratic State Chairman and the longtime Passaic County Democratic Chairman, has joined the Passaic County Board of Social Services as their new public information officer, according to executive director Tony Desimone.

The job seems like a good fit for Currie, who will be able to use a massive network of contacts to help the agency reach Passaic County residents who need assistance with Medicaid, food stamps, home energy assistance and other services.

Currie has been county chairman since 1990; under his leadership, the Passaic County Board of Freeholders flipped from 7-0 Republican to 7-0 Democratic.  He spent eight years on the board of the Paterson NAACP and has been active in numerous civic organizations, including the United Way, the Passaic/Clifton YMCA, and the Paterson Board of Recreation.

After Kristin Corrado won a State Senate seat in a 2017 special election, Currie had considered running for her old job as County Clerk.  He decided early this year not to run.

  1. Best county chairman in NJ in either party. Republicans in NJ should look to him as an example of how to organize.
