Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Pemberton Township is governed within the Faulkner Act (formally known as the Optional Municipal Charter Law) under the Mayor-Council form of municipal government (Plan 1), implemented based on the recommendations of a Charter Study Commission as of January 1, 1991, changing from a five-member Township Committee form based on a referendum passed by voters in 1989.[45][46][47] The governing body consists of a Mayor and a five-member Township Council, all of whom are elected at-large in partisan elections to serve four-year terms of office on a staggered basis, with either two seats (and the mayoral seat) or three seats up for election during even-numbered years as part of the November general election.[7][48] Voters approved a November 2006 referendum to change from having all five council seats up for vote simultaneously to a system in which the elections are staggered every two years. Under the terms of the change, the two candidates receiving the highest number of votes in the November 2010 election would serve full four-year terms, with the three other winners serving two-year terms.[49] As the three winners with the lowest number of votes in the 2010 election, the terms of Rick Prickett, Sherry Scull and Diane Stinney ended in December 2012.[50]

As of 2013, the Mayor of Pemberton Township is David A. Patriarca, whose term of office ends December 31, 2014.[51] Members of the Pemberton Township Council are Council President Sherry Scull (D, 2016), Jason Allen (2014), Ken Cartier (2014), Diane Stinney (D, 2016) and Norma Trueblood (D, 2016).[52][53][54][55]

The Police Department consists of 57 officers and is headed by Chief David Jantas.[56]
