Delany sworn in to replace Addiego

TRENTON – The Assembly minority’s replacement for new state Sen. Dawn Marie Addiego (R-Evesham) was sworn in today.

Lumberton Committeeman Pat Delany took her seat, following Addiego’s promotion to fill a Senate seat emptied by Phil Haines’s appointment as a superior court judge.

Delany was the unanimous pick of the Burlington County Republicans in mid-November, and was sworn in today along with Assemblymen Jason O’Donnell (D-Bayonne) and Gilbert “Whip” Wilson (D-Camden).

Both Democrats were confirmed by the voters after being appointed to seats earlier this year.

"It’s not a political environment that’s particularly warm for incumbents, but it looks like Booker has little to be worried about as the campaign season draws to a close."
