Dedication to Bloomfield

Nick Joanow currently serves on the Bloomfield Township Council as the representative for the 2nd Ward, which encompasses the northernmost one-third of Bloomfield.

First elected in 2009, Nick has dedicated himself full-time to serving the needs and interests of his constituents. Nick and his wife Marlene have been 2nd ward homeowners for 40 years, where they raised their two sons James and Nicholas, both of whom attended Bloomfield schools.

Lifetime of Public Service

A graduate of Monmouth University (known as Monmouth College at the time), Nick earned a Masters in Student Personnel Services (guidance counseling) from Seton Hall University before embarking on a 40-year career as an educator in the East Orange public school system.

Nick has dedicated himself to public service beyond his career in education through his involvement with a variety of community organizations and causes. Nick was a founding member of the Bloomfield Open Space Trust Fund, the Brookdale Park Conservancy, the Bloomfield Recycling Committee, and the Bloomfield Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).

Nick has been an active member of the Bloomfield Neighborhood Association Committee, the Bloomfield Third Riverbank Association, the Friends of Clarks Pond and Third River, the Fil-Am Association of Bloomfield, as well as a former board member of the Bloomfield High School Wrestling Booster Club.

Full-Time Advocate

As a retired educator, Nick now devotes himself full-time to serving the needs of his constituents and advocating for the interests of the 2nd Ward.

Nick prides himself on being available at any time, day or night, to respond to any and all concerns that his constituents may have. Nick has visited every home in the 2nd Ward several times during the walking tours he makes on a regular basis to meet his constituents.

Many residents in the ward are now on a first-name basis with "Councilman Nick", and know that Nick is only a phone call or email away when they have issues or concerns. Nick lives by the motto, "Working Hard for You in Ward Two!"
