RIVER EDGE, NJ — On Monday, January 3, 2022, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) administered the oath of office virtually for River Edge Councilwoman Michelle Kaufman.

“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).

In River Edge, Gottheimer highlighted, “Looking at all that Councilwoman Michelle Kauffman has done in her first term, one thing is certain — she has consistently used her experiences and talents to make River Edge an even more desirable, energetic, and successful town. I am looking forward to seeing how she continues to lead her community forward in 2022.”
