TRENTON – Senator Brian P. Stack was sworn in today to a four-year term as State Senator and pledged to focus on “education reform, property tax relief and the needs of the people” of his 33rd Legislative District.”
“I’ll be monitoring the new school funding formula and working to improve it to make sure it helps all children and doesn’t pull back on serving the needs of Abbott Districts,” said Senator Stack.
Moving to the Senate after four years in the Assembly, Senator Stack said his priorities will continue to be led by the needs of his constituents.
“My constituents live in mostly developed communities so my priorities will be urban concerns involving property tax relief and economic development, jobs and quality education,” said Senator Stack, who also has been the Mayor of Union City since 2000.
“By involving residents in the decisions affecting their families, we’ve enjoyed a significant renaissance in Union City,” said Senator Stack. “I am confident that a formula of hard work, attention to detail and good communications with residents will continue to provide substantial results for the people of the 33rd District.”
Senator Stack has devoted his entire life to public service, beginning as a tenant advocate while in his early teens. He graduated from Emerson High School in Union City and majored in criminal justice at Jersey City State College.
Early on, he became an expert in constituent services by working as a legislative aide to the 33rd District for several years before working in Union City as an administrator for the Commissioner of Parks and Public Property and as Deputy Director for Public Affairs. Prior to his election to the Assembly, Senator Stack also served for four years as a member of the Hudson County Board of Freeholders.
The Senator’s non-profit Civic Association has provided an array of year-round social services for tens of thousands of residents for more than 20 years.
