Council President Rosa DiFlorio has announced committee assignments for the 2020 city council.
Councilor at Large Wayne Matewsky, the longest serving member of the council and a former representative will be the Chairman of the influential Ways and Means Committee, arguably the busiest and most sought after committee assignment. Councilor at Large Peter Napolitano is the chair of the Committee on the Budget.
Councilor at Large Mike Marchese is the chair of the Committee on Community and Business Development and Public Utilities.
Committee on Government Operations goes to Stephanie Martins.
Councilor Anthony DiPierro will head the Committee on Legislative Affairs and Elections.
The School Finance Review Committee will be composed of Councilors DiFLorio, DiPierro and former mayor and councilor at large, John Hanlon.
This session of the council now at the beginning of its run is expected to be a different forum than it was last year.
Much of the council’s most important votes follow matters coming out of committee favorably after being discussed.
We believe President DiFlorio has made excellent choices to head the various committees.
