BERGEN COUNTY, NJ — U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) administered the oath of office for Bergen County Commissioner Rafael Marte.

“During the pandemic, Rafael led the charge to deliver food to veterans, seniors, and others who needed it most.

Rafael has also worked to develop speed humps in Bergenfield, helping protect kids and families across the community. Rafael is always looking out for his community, especially veterans. There is nothing more important than getting the backs of those who had ours.
