New Jersey Assembly[edit]

After the local Democratic Party decided to keep Assemblyman Carmelo Garcia off the primary ballot, a deal was reached in March 2015 between Senator Brian P. Stack, who is the mayor of Union City, and Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer to nominate Chaparro to replace Garcia on the ballot.[2]


In the 2018-2019 legislative session, Chaparro was primary sponsor on the following bills signed into law:

  • A-1428 Requires Department of Education to develop guidelines for school districts concerning child trafficking awareness and prevention.[3][4]
  • A-5002 Permits certain planned real estate developments to file certain liens; concerns limited priority of certain liens.[3]
  • AJR-122 Designates September 20 of each year as Hispanic Journalist Pride Day.[3]


Committee assignments for the current session are:[1]

  • Law and Public Safety, Vice-Chair
  • Tourism, Gaming and the Arts, Vice-Chair
  • Budget
