Gottheimer administers the oath of office for Park Ridge councilman Matt Capilli

PARK RIDGE, NJ — On Tuesday, January 4, 2022, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) administered the oath of office for Park Ridge Councilman Matt Capilli and Councilman John Ferguson.

In Park Ridge, Gottheimer was also joined by Park Ridge Mayor Keith Misciagna, Council President Kelly Epstein, Councilman John Cozzi, Councilman Robert Metzdorf,  Councilman Will Fenwick, families and friends, and community members in Park Ridge.

“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 Matt Capilli has served his first two terms in office with a drive and commitment to his community and first responders that helps him make a difference every day. From fighting for a new turf football field and upgraded basketball courts, which he made happen without raising taxes, by clawing back available investment from Open Space Funds, to serving on the Board of Education Committee, where he’s a liaison between the Council and the Board, Matt’s commitment to Park Ridge is clear. I know he will bring that exact same energy to his third term.”

Gottheimer added, “Councilman John Ferguson was first elected to the council in 2018 and served his first term with a never-ending desire to provide the support that Park Ridge needs to flourish. From working as the Borough’s Fire Commissioner, to helping save taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars by securing grants for the new sports facilities and parks, John is always going above and beyond for the Park Ridge community.”
