Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Andover 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.[32] 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 Andover 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.[33][34]

As of 2020, the Mayor of Andover Borough is Republican John A. Morgan, whose term of office ends December 31, 2023. Members of the Borough Council are Council President Lynn T. Delfing (R, 2020), Melvin Dennison (R, 2021), John P. Hoag (R, 2020), Peter Pearson (D, 2022), Robert L. Smith (R, 2021) and Kim Walter (R, 2022).[3][35][36][37][38]

In February 2016, the Borough Council chose John Hoag from three candidates proposed by the Republican municipal committee to fill the seat that had been held Eskil S. Danielson that will expire in December 2017; Hoag will serve on an interim basis until the November 2016 general election, when voters will choose someone to serve the balance of the term.[39]

In February 2015, the Borough Council selected Michael Figueiredo from a list of three candidates nominated by the Democratic municipal committee to fill the seat expiring in December 2016 that became vacant when Deborah McGowan resigned from office.[40] Figueiredo served on an interim basis until the November 2015 general election, when he was elected to serve the one year remaining on the term of office.[41]

Law enforcement is covered by the New Jersey State Police. Fire protection is covered by the Andover Borough Volunteer Fire Department. EMS is handled by the Lakeland Emergency Squad.[3]

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.[52] As of 2014, Sussex County's Freeholders are Freeholder Director Richard Vohden (R, Green Township, 2016),[53] Deputy Director Dennis J. Mudrick (R, Sparta Township, 2015),[54] Phillip R. Crabb (R, Franklin, 2014),[55] George Graham (R, Stanhope, 2016)[56] and Gail Phoebus (R, Andover Township, 2015).[57][52] Graham was chosen in April 2013 to fill the seat vacated by Parker Space, who had been chosen to fill a vacancy in the New Jersey General Assembly.[58] Constitutional officers elected on a countywide basis are County Clerk Jeff Parrott (R, 2016),[59] Sheriff Michael F. Strada (R, 2016)[60] and Surrogate Gary R. Chiusano (R, filling the vacancy after the resignation of Nancy Fitzgibbons).[61][58] The County Administrator is John Eskilson.[62][63]
