The committee announced Manuel Delgado as her running mate in the November municipal elections in an announcement issued Tuesday morning.
“After screening a number of highly qualified and impressive candidates, we are extremely proud and excited to announce the Jordan/Delgado ticket as our choice to carry the banner this November,” said Moorestown Republican Committee Vice Chair Jamie Boren, who led the Candidate Screening Committee for this election cycle. “Stacey and Manny understand the challenges faced by Moorestown families, and believe strongly in our ideals of community, fiscal responsibility, and a transparent and efficient government here in town.”
Jordan was elected in 2010 with 4,509 votes, the most of the three candidates who ran in that election. She was named the township’s first female mayor in 2013, and served for one year before stepping down in January.
She is the council’s economic liaison to the Economic Development Advisory Committee and the Tree Planting and Preservation Committee.
She is part of the Moorestown Home and School Association, Girl Scouts of the South Jersey Pines, March of Dimes, Burlington County Special Services School, and the First Presbyterian Church of Moorestown. She is married with four children.
“Looking at Stacey Jordan’s record on Town Council and her tenure as Mayor and Deputy Mayor, it’s clear that she has a proven record of putting the citizens of Moorestown first and deserves our support this November,” Moorestown Republican Committee Chairman Steve Solomon said. “Combined with experience and drive that Manny Delgado will bring to the ticket, I believe that 2014 will be a very good year to be a Republican in Moorestown.”
Delgado is a member of the planning board, a Trustee for Moorestown Youth Baseball, is on the Salvation Army Advisory Board covering most of South Jersey, and is a baseball, basketball, and football coach here in town.
Delgado, a Moorestown resident for about 10 years, is the Executive Director of the Cramer Hill Community Development Corporation in Camden, a non-profit group dedicated to building an economically and culturally diverse community by creating diverse housing opportunities.
He is married with four children.
The primary for this year's elections will be held June 3. The general election is Nov. 4.
