KEYPORT, NJ — U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) administered the oath of office for Keyport Councilmembers Heather Brady, Stephen Gross, and Kathleen McNamara.

“Heather has been a strong supporter of Keyport’s youth, always looking for ways to stand up and advocate for young people wherever her voice is needed, leading by example for the next generation. Now that she’s been elected to the Borough Council, she has a new space to advocate for the future leaders of Keyport,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) about Councilmember Brady.

“Stephen is determined to ensure that Keyport remains a beautiful and friendly town. He is a strong advocate for the equal and fair treatment of all who live in his community. It’s people like Stephen who make Jersey and our country so strong. Stephen is constantly bringing us together so that we can learn from one another and put our country and community first. He is leading a new generation of leaders to support the Keyport community, ensuring that all voices are heard,” said Gottheimer about Councilmember Gross. 

“During the pandemic, Kathleen coordinated efforts with the mayor and her fellow council members to ensure Keyport’s seniors could schedule and get transportation to vaccine appointments. Kathleen felt that her three years in office went by too quickly, and I know she jumped at the opportunity to stay for an additional year, follow through on the projects she started, and continue helping the people of this great community. She is a strong advocate for residents of all ages, continuing to find ways to improve Keyport’s parks, pedestrian safety, and efforts to keep the local environment clean,” said Gottheimer about Councilmember McNamara. 

Gottheimer was joined by NJ Assemblywoman Victoria A. Flynn (LD-13), Keyport Mayor Rose P. Araneo, Keyport Council President Lori Ann Davidson, Keyport Councilmember J. Christopher Demarest, Keyport Councilmember Ron G. Peperoni, Jr., Keyport Councilmember Cathleen Reilly, Keyport Councilmember Melissa Vecchio, Boy Scout Troop 66 from Matawan, New Jersey, Bayshore Christian Fellowship Pastor Michael Shahid, Keyport Police Chief Shannon Torres, and members of Keyport’s Fire Department and First Aid Squad.
