This is a press release from Bloomfield Township. Press releases are official statements that have not been independently verified.

As part of the once every ten years census, the ward maps have been adjusted to ensure that each ward has equal populations. District 1-12 has been moved to the second ward while district 3-14 has been moved to the first ward. 

“After this change to our ward maps, I encourage residents to check and make sure they know their ward and district,” said Mayor Venezia. “Knowing what district and ward you live in is important to understand who your representative on the council is and where you vote.”


“As Bloomfield continues to grow and thrive, it becomes necessary to shift the composition of our wards so that everyone has proper representation,” said first ward Councilwoman Jenny Mundell. “The first ward is a wonderful place to live and I can’t wait to hear from the new residents of our ward.”

“To the new residents of the second ward I would like to welcome you and to let you know that I am always here to assist you in any way that I can,” said second ward Councilman Nicholas Joanow. “I look forward to meeting you in the near future at one of our regular community meetings that take place throughout the year.”
