Tony Perry Expected to be 2019 Middletown Mayor with Tony Fiore to Serve as Deputy Mayor
When the governing body reorganizes on Sunday, January 6th, Tony Perry will take the oath of office to serve his first full three-year term on the Township Committee. During this meeting, the governing body is also expected to elect Perry to serve as Middletown’s Mayor for the first time with Tony Fiore serving as Deputy Mayor for 2019.
At 28, Tony Perry will be the youngest person ever to serve as Mayor of Middletown and among the youngest in Monmouth County and the State of New Jersey. “Perry’s energy, enthusiasm and youth combined with Tony Fiore’s years of experience on the Committee will be a huge benefit to our residents,” said Mayor Kevin Settembrino.
Fiore has been on the Township Committee for over 10 years, served as Mayor twice, and it will be his fifth time serving as Deputy Mayor. He was also on the Middletown Planning Board from 2006 through 2009.
“If elected on Sunday, serving as Mayor at the start of my term is a tremendous way to begin the journey,” said Perry, who joined the governing body in 2017 when he was appointed to fill an unexpired term. “I’m humbled to be given this opportunity and deeply appreciate the support of the Township Committee and the residents of Middletown.”
