Campaign 2011: DiRenzo: “Proud To Serve”


HADDON HEIGHTS, October 28, 2011 – Discussing his current campaign for an open seat on Haddon Heights Borough Council, 26-year law enforcement veteran Rick DiRenzo said that if he were elected, he would be “proud to serve – just like how I was proud to serve my fellow citizens as a member of the Camden City Police.”  

DiRenzo, who is currently a Fleet Sales Manager for a major area car dealership, is on the November 8, 2011 ballot with his running mates, current Councilman and mayoral candidate Ed Forte, and current Councilwoman Kathy Lange.  “Ed, Kathy, and I have been knocking on every

door and listening to our residents.  Our residents say they want more of what local government has been able to give them over the last several years in Heights:  controlled taxes and improved quality of life.  I want to help continue the progress and prove what local government can do when it actually works for the residents.”

DiRenzo’s 26-year tenure with the Camden City Police included various leadership roles such as Community Policing Officer, Tactical Force Member, Police Academy Instructor, and Fleet Management Officer before retiring from the department in 2000 as a Senior Sergeant.  He has served on the board of the PBA and is proud to have the support of many in the law enforcement community.

“The spirit of a small town comes from a sense of community.  Throughout my community involvement over the years, I’ve seen what can be done when the residents are involved.  As a Councilman, I will always remember that my job is to serve the residents.”  Currently, DiRenzo serves the residents of Haddon Heights as a volunteer member of the borough’s Planning Board.

“I hope that the voters of Haddon Heights will give Ed, Kathy, and me the chance to work for them by voting for us on November 8th,” DiRenzo added.  “Our team brings the right combination of experience and enthusiasm to deliver successful results for Haddon Heights for many years to come.”
