NORWOOD, NJ — On Wednesday, January 5, 2022, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) administered the oath of office for Norwood Councilman Tom Brizzolara.
In Norwood, Gottheimer was also joined by Norwood Mayor Jim Barsa, Councilwoman Annie Hausmann, Councilman Anthony Foschino, Council President Joe Ascolese, Councilman John Rooney, Councilman BJ Kim, families and friends, and community members in Norwood.
“Those taking this oath today have been entrusted with the most fundamental duties of government: making sure our roads are paved, ensuring there is clean water, and keeping our families safe. This is a solemn duty — to govern and to lead — especially today with COVID variants still running rampant, with our economy reopening and small businesses getting back on their feet, our kids back in school, and as we all work to make life more affordable for our families and seniors,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5).
Gottheimer noted, “Councilman Tom Brizzolara was first elected to the council in 1999 and, since then, has served six additional terms in office, with tenacity and constant commitment to make Norwood an even stronger community. I just know that he will take that attitude and his nearly two decades of experience into his seventh term, and I can’t wait to see what he does to continue to keep our residents safe, lower taxes, and make Norwood an even greater place to live.”
