Historic Achievement as Fauzia Janjua Elected as Mayor in Mount Laurel, NJ

In a groundbreaking milestone, Pakistani-American woman Fauzia Janjua has secured a historic victory by being elected as the mayor of Mount Laurel in the state of New Jersey, USA. Joined by her husband and four sons, Janjua proudly participated in the swearing-in ceremony at the Township Hall in Mount Laurel, holding a Quran during the event.

During the ceremony, New Jersey State Assembly member and congressional candidate Carol Murphy administered the oath of office to Fauzia Janjua. In her speech, Janjua expressed her pride in her Pakistani heritage and highlighted the historic significance of her election. She shared details about her background, noting that her father hails from Chakwal, and her mother from Lahore. Born in America after her father’s migration in the 1970s, Janjua pursued her education in the United States.

Carol Murphy, in a statement, expressed her honor in administering the oaths of office, celebrating the historic occasion of Mayor Fauzia Janjua becoming the first Pakistani and Muslim woman mayor in Mount Laurel’s history. This achievement is seen as a matter of pride not only for Janjua but also for the entire Pakistani community.

With her election, Democrats have claimed the mayoral position in Mount Laurel for the first time in 36 years, breaking the longstanding trend of Republican representation in the role. Fauzia Janjua’s commitment to community service has been a lifelong passion, focusing on teaching prisoners and underprivileged children. She established an NGO dedicated to community service, aiming to enhance the lives of the people.
