Wilfredo Benitez, who is to be sworn into office on Wednesday, Oct. 6, will be the municipality’s first Hispanic municipal court judge, the township announced, following the local government’s Monday, Sept. 25, approval of the appointment.
Benitez is set to serve a three-year term starting on Oct. 6. By ordinance, his salary is set at $70,359.
“I’m excited about the opportunity,” Benitez told NorthJersey.com. “I consider myself a public servant, and look forward to serving the great people of Bloomfield.”
He speaks fluent Spanish, something that may come in handy in Bloomfield.
Here he is speaking fluent drunky, trying to use his influence to intimidate the police.
