Housing Authority of the City of Orange Board of Commissioners

ORANGE, NJ – February 15, 2019 – Governor Phil Murphy has re-appointedDr. Joseph Juliano for a third term on the Board of Commissioners for the Housing Authority of the City of Orange, where he serves as vice chair.

Dr. Juliano was first appointed commissioner in 1998 by then Governor Christine Whitman and by Governor Chris Christie for a second term. “I am proud to be appointed by a democratic governor,” said the registered Democrat. “The governor continues to demonstrate his commitment to revitalizing New Jersey’s older communities, cities like Orange, where residents can once again live in comfort and safety. We are grateful for his support as we continue our work.”

As a life-long resident of Orange, Dr. Juliano is proud of the work the board has accomplished. “We completed over and above what needed to be completed when we finishedDr. Walter G. Alexander Phase IV by means of making the city more attractive for people to live and work here,” commented Dr. Juliano. “We are there already. Now, I look around and see just a few empty warehouses and abandoned houses where there used to be many. We are continuing to work with the city on these projects.”

Dr. Juliano has demonstrated his commitment to the community in many ways. He has been certified as a public housing manager by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials, a lengthy procedure that he personally funded. He also established two scholarships for women at Essex County College and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning & Public Policy, Rutgers University, named for his mother, the Honorable Patricia Juliano, who was the first woman to be elected to the City of Orange Council. Last year he established the Kathryn Marie Juliano Art Scholarship in memory of his sister who died last year. It is offered through the Montclair Art Museum where his sister took classes.

“The Board of Commissioners is indebted to Dr. Juliano for his selfless service to the well-being of the residents of the City of Orange,” said Dr. Walter McNeil, HACO’s executive director. “Dr. Juliano has demonstrated his commitment to his hometown and surrounding community in a multiple of ways. His colleagues on the board and myself welcome the opportunity of continuing to work with him to make our city an even better place to live and work.”
