Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Ogdensburg is governed under the Borough form of New Jersey municipal government, which is used in 218 municipalities (of the 565) statewide, making it the most common form of government in New Jersey.[36] The governing body is comprised of the Mayor and the Borough Council, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. The Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. The Borough Council is comprised of six members elected to serve three-year terms on a staggered basis, with two seats coming up for election each year in a three-year cycle.[6] The Borough form of government used by Ogdensburg is a "weak mayor / strong council" government in which council members act as the legislative body with the mayor presiding at meetings and voting only in the event of a tie. The mayor can veto ordinances subject to an override by a two-thirds majority vote of the council. The mayor makes committee and liaison assignments for council members, and most appointments are made by the mayor with the advice and consent of the council.[37][38]

As of 2020, the Mayor of Ogdensburg Borough is Republican George P. Hutnick, whose term of office ends December 31, 2022. Members of the Ogdenburg Borough Council are Council President Michael Nardini (D, 2020), Nelson Alvarez (R, 2021; elected to serve an unexpired term), Juan Cruz (R, 2020; appointed to serve an unexpired term), Anthony Nasisi (R, 2022), Brenda O'Dell (R, 2022) and Rachel-Lynn Slater (R, 2021).[3][39][40][41][42]

In June 2019, Nelson Alvarez was appointed to fill the seat expiring in December 2021 that had been held by David Astor.[43] In the November 2019 general election, Alavarez was elected to serve the balance of the term of office.[40]

In December 2019, Juan Cruz was appointed to fill the balance of the term expiring in December 2020 that had been held by Peter G. Opilla until he left office.[44]

Sussex County is governed by a Board of Chosen Freeholders whose five members are elected at-large in partisan elections on a staggered basis, with either one or two seats coming up for election each year. At an annual reorganization meeting held in the beginning of January, the board selects a Freeholder Director and Deputy Director from among its members, with day-to-day supervision of the operation of the county delegated to a County Administrator.[55] As of 2014, Sussex County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director Richard Vohden (R, Green Township, 2016),[56] Deputy Director Dennis J.
