Sagliocco Appointed Housing Authority Commissioner

SOUTH AMBOY – Saverio Sagliocco has been appointed by Governor Chris Christie to serve as Commissioner on the South Amboy Housing Authority. Sagliocco will serve out the term of a Commissioner who resigned. Senator Sam Thompson who is the Middlesex County Republican Chairman had approached Sagliocco about applying for this position. The Commissioner is a voluntary unpaid position.

In a phone interview, Sagliocco said that he is honored to have the opportunity to serve the City of South Amboy. “My dad was very excited,” said Sagliocco, “Especially since I am the son of an immigrant. He is very proud and so am I to be appointed to this office by the Governor of New Jersey. I applied for this position towards the end of 2011 and besides submitting a resume there was also a phone interview through the Governor’s office. I will be filling out an oath of office that has to be executed by a Notary. A copy has to be sent to the municipal clerk of South Amboy, the DCA (Department of Community Affairs) and the Housing Authority of South Amboy. Part of the screening process also included a background investigation by the New Jersey State Police. I was told that there were other candidates who were considered for this position, so it is exciting for me and my family to have been selected for it.”

Sagliocco retired as a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy having served twenty years in the Navy (eight years full time – twelve years as reserve). He also ran as a Councilman-at-large in the 2010 South Amboy general election. Sagliocco has an M.B.A. in finance and has seventeen years of banking and financial experience.
