Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Pohatcong Township is governed by the Faulkner Act (Small Municipality) form of government. The Faulkner Act allows municipalities to adopt a Small Municipality form of government only for municipalities with a population of under 12,000. The government consists of a Mayor and a four-member Township Council, with all positions elected at large in non-partisan elections. A Mayor is elected directly by the voters to a four-year term of office. Council members serve a term of three years, which are staggered so that one or two seats come up for election each year.[5] In May 2011 the township council submitted an ordinance to shift the non-partisan elections from May to November. The shift, which took effect in November 2012, was intended to save the municipality $8,000 a year in costs associated with conducting the election.[33]

As of 2013, the Mayor of Pohatcong Township is James R. Kern, III, whose term of office expires on December 30, 2015. Members of the Township Council (with committee directod year listed in parentheses) are Council President Anthony S. Vangeli (Director of Public Health and Welfare; 2014), Frank Becker (Director of Administration; 2015), David Slack (Director of Public Works/Building and Grounds; 2013) and Mary Van Lieu (Director of Public Safety; 2013).[34][35][36][37][38][39]

At 22 years of age when he was inaugurated on July 1, 2011, Kern became the youngest municipal executive serving in office in the State of New Jersey.[40]

Warren County is governed by a Board of Chosen Freeholders whose three members are elected at-large on a staggered basis with one seat coming up for election each year. At an annual organization held in the beginning of January, the board selects one of its members to serve sa Freeholder Director and other as Deputy Director. As of 2013, Warren County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director Jason Sarnoski (R, Lopatcong Township, 2013) Freeholder Deputy Director Edward J.
