New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community

Patti O’Byrne, a 28-year resident of Warren Township, has always believed it is important for voters in Warren to have choice when they go to the ballot box which is why she is running as a Democratic candidate for Town Committee. 


Raised in Massachusetts, Patti attended public schools in Holyoke and graduated Phi Betta Kappa from Wesleyan University in Connecticut. She moved to New Jersey for her executive position in Chubb Group of Insurance Companies. During her career, she served as audit manager for a $2 billion division, and managed an underwriting operation with over $425 million in revenue and 75 employees. As a leader, Patti’s skills in management, financial planning, and team building have transferred into other important roles in our community.


As the mother of an adult son and daughter, Patti has been an active local volunteer since her children were in elementary school, serving as homeroom parent and parent representative on K-8 Curriculum. Like many in the community, she is grateful for the wonderful education her children, Holly and Ryan, received from the Warren public schools.


More recently, Patti has served on a number of boards including the Brook Hill Swim and Tennis Club and the Berkeley Heights YMCA advisory board where she served for fifteen years. As a board member, she worked on annual fundraising, publicity campaigns, and community outreach. She is currently serving her third term on the Somerset County Commission on the Status of Women as Treasurer of the organization. 


With her leadership skills and commitment to community, Patti has proven she is prepared to take on the role of Town Committeewoman. “For too long, Warren’s Republican incumbents ran unopposed in November elections. I’m proud of the work we’ve done to ensure that we have candidates who present positive visions for the township. I am a registered Democrat, but I definitely consider myself a centrist. I’m a passionate moderate, and I don’t believe that is a contradiction in terms. Moreover, local elections are not about political party affiliations. Too often our opponents have tried to cynically inject national politics into Warren’s political campaigns. Local elections are about local issues, not whatever might be happening on the national scene. I don’t believe divisiveness is the answer. I think residents of Warren are ready to see us come together, find solutions and ways to move forward that engage all citizens. I’m excited to have the opportunity to bring a new style of responsive, respectful leadership to the community.”
