MONROE – The mayor and council members were sworn in to Monroe’s governing body, with special guest U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) in attendance.

“The oaths that you are taking today are sacred oaths,” Booker said during the Jan. 1 reorganization meeting.

With COVID in mind, the officials took their oaths of office with family in a private ceremony in council chambers.

Booker swore in Democratic incumbent Mayor Stephen Dalina.

Terrance G. Van Dzura, a Democrat, was sworn in to serve the unexpired council-at-large term; Elizabeth “Betty” Schneider, a Democrat, was sworn in to serve her third term as Ward 1 councilperson; Rupa P. Siegel, a Democrat, was sworn in to serve her first term as Ward 2 councilperson; and Charles Dipierro, a Republican, was sworn in to serve his second term as Ward 3 councilperson.
