Commissioner Alphonse Petracco
Alphonse Petracco is currently serving his third term on the Township of Nutley Board of Commissioners and previously served from 2012-2016 as Mayor. Elected in May 2008, he is the Director of Public Safety.
Alphonse Petracco, a lifelong Nutley resident, has been a business owner for many years starting with leasing and running the meat department at Foodarama on Washington Avenue. While at this location, Al established himself as a reputable business operator and was able to parlay the success of this location into another location on Union Avenue. After several years of expanding both locations he consolidated both stores to what is now known as Petracco and Sons, a vision he made a realization after many years of hard work and determination.
Al brings to the township his business experience and feels he will be able to provide the township with innovative ways to stabilize taxes while maintaining the quality lifestyle Nutley is well known for. He has always taken a keen interest in the volunteer spirit in Nutley and has contributed to that effort by coaching Little League baseball, youth basketball and by helping many charitable organizations in the township.
Al is married with three sons.
