Runnemede is a borough in Camden County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 8,468,[9][10][11] reflecting a decline of 65 (-0.8%) from the 8,533 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 509 (-5.6%) from the 9,042 counted in the 1990 Census.[20]

Runnemede was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 23, 1926, from portions of the now-defunct Centre Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 24, 1926. The boroughs of Bellmawr, Mount Ephraim and Lawnside were simultaneously created during the same two-day period.[21] The derivation of the borough's name is uncertain, though claims that it derives from a Native American term for "running water" have been refuted and connections to General George Meade or to "rum we need" for a nearby tavern are probably apocryphal.[22] Sources have cited the name as coming from Runnymede, England.[23]

Geography[edit]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the borough had a total area of 2.11 square miles (5.45 km2), including 2.05 square miles (5.31 km2) of land and 0.05 square miles (0.14 km2) of water (2.56%).[1][2]

Unincorporated communities, localities and place names located partially or completely within the borough include Glendora.[24]

The borough borders Barrington, Bellmawr, Gloucester Township and Magnolia in Camden County. Runnemede also borders Deptford Township in Gloucester County.[25][26][27]

Government[edit]

Local government[edit]

Runnemede 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.[37] The governing body is comprised of a Mayor and a Borough Council, with all positions elected at-large on a partisan basis as part of the November general election. A 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.[7] The Borough form of government used by Runnemede 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.[38][39]

As of 2020, the Mayor of Runnemede is Democrat Nick Kappatos, whose term of office ends December 31, 2022. Members of the Borough Council are Council President Patricia Tartaglia Passio (D, 2020), Luis "Rich" Cepero (D, 2022), Robert "Bob" Farrell (D, 2022), Eleanor M.
