Bio

Assemblyman Verrelli is a life-long resident of Legislative District 15. Born and raised in Lawrence, Anthony graduated from Notre Dame High School before attending the Sam F. Secretario Carpenters Training Center. It was there that Anthony learned carpentry and it was the beginning of what would be a, currently, 30 year career as a building tradesman. Family has always mattered to the Assemblyman. Born to immigrant parents right here in the 15th , Anthony is now married. He and his wife Donna have one beautiful daughter, Alyssa. Anthony and his family, including his parents Georgina and Freddie and brother Ronnie, all live in Pennington. Anthony is dedicated to making sure New Jersey residents earn a respectable income so they can live well and retire with dignity. His career in the trades has allowed him to help others who have struggled with the traditional path of working in an office. As a member of United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America since 1989, and a Union Organizer since 1998, Anthony has fought for Union member's wages and benefits. Assemblyman Verrelli currently works for The Keystone + Mountain + Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters as a Senior Council Representative, Team Leader, and Trustee. He is also the current president of Local Union 254. Anthony is a proud, life-long tradesman. The Assemblyman first got involved in public affairs in 2001 when he became a member of the Ewing Township Zoning Board of Adjustments. He then joined the Mercer County Planning Board in 2004. From 2008 to 2016 Anthony was a member of the Mercer County Improvement Authority. Anthony has been a proud member of the Hopewell Township Knights of Columbus since 2010. In 2016, Anthony ran a successful campaign for Freeholder in Mercer County before becoming an Assemblyman in the 15 th Legislative District in August 2018. Assemblyman Verrelli hopes to focus on three key areas during his time in the legislature; 1) economic justice; 2) mental health, addiction services, and fighting recidivism; and 3) clean air and water. Anthony looks forward to working hard for the Fighting 15 and serving his constituents and State to the best of his ability.
