MORRIS COUNTY — Anthony M. Bucco took the oath of office today to become the new Senator for New Jersey’s 25th Legislative District. A lifelong resident of Morris County, Bucco was sworn in during a session of the New Jersey Senate at the State House in Trenton.
“It is my absolute honor to be sworn in today as Senator for the 25th District. I look forward to continuing my fight for the taxpayers of Morris and Somerset counties on the issues important to them – lower property taxes, fair school funding, safer communities, and creating better-paying jobs, just to name a few,” said Bucco. “It is my pledge to the 25th District’s residents that I will continue with my track record of pristine constituent service and a work ethic that they have come to know with me as their Assemblyman.”
Bucco earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and managerial economics in 1984 from Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pa. He went on to receive his law degree from Seton Hall Law School in 1987, and was admitted to the New Jersey bar that same year. He is a partner at the law firm of Murphy McKeon, P.C. specializing in local government law.
Prior to joining the Senate, Bucco served in the New Jersey General Assembly from 2010 to 2019, including as Republican Conference Leader in his final two years.
The 25th Legislative District includes parts of Morris and Somerset counties.
