New council took stage in Keansburg: VIDEOS

The borough of Keansburg had its 18th reorganization meeting today in Borough Hall.

Arthur Boden was selected by the council as this year’s mayor, and James Cocuzza as deputy mayor.

First-timer Anthony DePompa joined Lisa Strydio and George Hoff to round out the council.

The court room was packed to the brim with guests and political figures, including Sen. Joseph Kyrillos, Assemblyman Sam Thompson and Joseph Oxley, as well as many of the Freeholders.
