SUMMIT, NJ – Delia Hamlet is running for election to the Summit Common Council, seeking to claim the Ward 1 seat currently held by Democrat Danny O’Sullivan. In announcing Hamlet’s candidacy, the Summit Republican City Committee noted Hamlet was written-in on the June 7 Primary ballot.

A United State Army Veteran, Hamlet is currently a partner and Chief Operating Officer at the Fort Athletic Club in Fort Monmouth, where she is responsible for all operational aspects of the 50,000 square foot fitness facility. She has lived in Summit for more than 10 years, where she is an active member of the community and mother of three children, who all attend the Summit Public School System.

“I am honored that my fellow Summit residents have put their faith in me to address the serious issues facing our community. While it was not my original intention to run for office, I’m ready to serve as I have for my entire life. I love our city, and I’ll spend the next four months hearing the concerns of our neighbors and working to earn their vote,” said Hamlet, adding, “My top priority is fighting the proposed overdevelopment that will dramatically increase traffic and demand on our already strained infrastructure. I will also continue to work with the residents of Summit for the resources needed to make our town safer and pledge to be a check and balance on the city budget.”
