Mount Olive Town Council Candidates Deans, Sergonis, and Singh Endorsed by Congressman Malinowski
Mount Olive, NJ — Congressman Tom Malinowski (D-NJ 7th District) has endorsed for the Mount Olive Town Council, the Democratic slate of Lloyd Deans, Irene Sergonis, and Raj Singh. Representative Malinowski said, “Lloyd, Irene and Raj will work to protect the environment, increase open spaces, and bring a new voice to the Mt. Olive Town Council.”
Deans, Sergonis, and Singh said they’re honored to receive Representative Malinowski’s endorsement, noting the Congressman has shown a commitment to Mount Olive while running for office, and that has continued since being elected.
Lloyd Deans, a former Army Veteran who currently works supporting mothers of children with special needs, police officers, and veterans, said “I’m proud to get the endorsement of our Congressman and former Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor. Representative Malinowski stands for what I fought for overseas. And as Democrats, we will continue to fight for those values here at home.”
As a small business owner for 28 years in Mount Olive and the founder of the Mount Olive Volleyball Association, Irene Sergonis said she understands that all politics is local. “You look at what’s happening nationally and it can get overwhelming. But I’ve learned that individuals can have a voice in a community and can shape its future. Representative Malinowski has shown a keen interest in our community and the platform the Democratic slate for Mount Olive Town Council is running on,” Sergonis said.
Raj Singh, a pharmaceutical engineer for the past 13 years, said he was glad to see Congressman Malinowski highlight the environment in his endorsement. “The environment is one of my key issues for Mount Olive. I want to continue to develop the community trail systems and make renewable energy more available for businesses and residents in an effort to one day create a 100% green community,” Singh said.
“As Congressman Malinowski said, the Democratic slate for Mount Olive Town Council will “bring a new voice” to Mount Olive. A voice that believes in transparency, fiscal responsibly, checks and balances, diversity, and respect for the environment,” Deans said.
