Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Lodi operates under the 1923 Municipal Manager Law form of New Jersey municipal government. The voters elect five members to a council who are elected at-large in non-partisan elections to serve four-year terms of office on a concurrent basis.[6] A mayor and deputy mayor are selected by the council from among its members. The council functions strictly as a legislative body with responsibility for day-to-day operation of the borough assigned to a manager who acts as the municipal chief executive and executes laws and policies, prepares the budget for council consideration and attends and participates at meetings with a voice, but no vote. The manager recommends improvements and implements those approved, as well as over-sees contracts and franchises and reports violations. It is the responsibility of the manager to appoint and remove department heads and make all additional appointments not made by the council.[33]

As of 2013, members of the Lodi Township Council are Mayor Bruce Masopust, Deputy Mayor Marc N. Schrieks, Laura E. Cima, Paula Fiduccia and Patricia Ann Licata, all of whom were elected in 2011 and serve terms that expire on June 30, 2015.[34][35]

Schrieks was elected by the council as mayor on July 1, 2008 and served until June 30, 2009, making him the youngest person to ever serve as its Mayor.[36] Karen Viscana was the first woman to serve as mayor in the history of Lodi.[37]

Bergen County is governed by a directly elected County Executive, with legislative functions performed by a seven-member Board of Chosen Freeholders.[51] The County Executive is Kathleen Donovan (R, Rutherford; term ends December 31, 2014).[52] The seven freeholders are elected at-large in partisan elections on a staggered basis, with two or three seats coming up for election each year, with a Chairman, Vice Chairman and Chairman Pro Tempore selected from among its members at a reorganization meeting held each January.[53] As of 2014, Bergen County's Freeholders are Freeholder Chairman David L.
