Recent News for Sparta Township:

A defensive, and still elusive, U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11) recently issued a press release claiming that despite his refusal to show up at Town Hall-style meetings throughout the county, his pre-arranged visits with select groups and bizarre “telephone town halls” keep him apprised of the wishes of his constituency.

Democrats in Sussex County continue to stand up and proclaim themselves, and Tuesday night two of them announced plans to do so in Trenton.

U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11) has been in Congress for 12 terms, and over them his voting record has moved from somewhat progressive in the beginning (in areas such as reproductive freedom, for example) steadily to the right, to the point that his most recent voting record is 100 percent along GOP lines.

U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11), whose district includes the Sussex County towns of Byram, Hopatcong, Ogdensburg, Sparta and Stanhope, hasn’t held a town meeting in four years.

While Sussex County progressives have celebrated election of the first Democrat to represent Congressional District 5 in decades, five county municipalities—Byram Township, Hopatcong, Ogdensburg, Sparta Township and Stanhope—are part of District 11, represented by Rodney Frelinghuysen, who has held that seat for 22 years.
