BOONTON — Attorney Joe Bock has filed a nominating petition and will run for the Town of Boonton Board of Aldermen to represent the Town’s Third Ward. Bock has lived in the Boonton area for most of his life, and returned to his home community after graduating from Hamilton College and Rutgers Law School. He currently lives in Boonton’s Historic Main Street District. Joe Bock practices land use and local government law at the Morris County office of a prominent New Jersey law firm, and previously served as Public Defender for Boonton Township and for Parsippany-Troy Hills.
“I can think of no better way of giving back to my community than running for the Town of Boonton Board of Aldermen. As an Alderman, I will work to promote open and transparent government, reduce wasteful spending to help taxpayers, and improve parking on Main Street. I look forward to running an issues-based campaign explaining my vision to the residents of Boonton’s Third Ward,” said Bock.
Joe Bock has been endorsed by many current and former elected officials with ties to Boonton, including incumbent Boonton Aldermen Cyril Wekilsky, James Lynch and Michael Cardillo; Former Mayor Ed Bolcar; Former Aldermen Doris Yanez, Dan Piccioni, Keith Price and Tony Scozzafava; Senator Anthony Bucco, Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco, Assemblywoman BettyLou DeCroce, Sheriff James Gannon, Freeholder Director Doug Cabana and Freeholder Steve Shaw.
Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco said, “Joe Bock is a skilled municipal attorney who understands the complex challenges that local governments face. These talents, along with his commitment to open, ethical and responsible government will make him an excellent Alderman for Boonton.”
Sheriff James Gannon stated, “It has been my pleasure to watch Joe grow from a student athlete into a community leader. He honorably served Boonton Township and Parsippany as Public Defender, and will bring this same commitment to the Boonton Board of Aldermen.”
Boonton Fourth Ward Alderman Michael Cardillo stated, “I am very excited for Joe Bock’s candidacy for the Board of Alderman. Joe shares my vision of open government and responsible spending. Together we will work to provide an affordable Boonton with honest and ethical government.”
