MOORESTOWN — In a short period of time in his political career, Quinton Law has already made a number of firsts and this month, he made history again by being named deputy mayor of Moorestown.

Law, already the youngest person and the first African American to be named to the Moorestown council. After being appointed to council and winning an election to fill an unexpired term, Law won a full term in council this past November.

During Moorestown reorganization, Law was selected as deputy mayor, with his running mate Nicole Gillespie serving another term as Moorestown mayor.

“It will be an honor to serve as deputy mayor, and I am deeply appreciative of my council colleagues and Moorestown residents for trusting me with this responsibility,” Law told Front Runner New Jersey this week.

“As we look forward to 2023 you can count on me to remain committed to listening, working for everyone in this community, and ensuring residents get the highest quality services at the lowest possible cost.”

Law is a Moorestown native and a college athlete at Bryant University. From February 2020 to last May, he worked as a constituent advocate for U.S. Sen. Cory Booker.

“I also look forward to working with our Better Together Advisory Committee to focus on celebrating diversity, unity and bringing our town together,” Law said. “I believe that in Moorestown everyone deserves to feel safe, included and welcome.

“There is still work to do, but this community is moving in the right direction and seeing positive progress. If you told me when I was 15 that in 10 years I’d become the deputy mayor of Moorestown — I would’ve probably said, ‘That’s impossible.’ What I now realize is that with hard work and dedication, nothing is impossible.”
