Council President

Mildred C. Crump

Mildred C. Crump was sworn in as Newark’s first African-American Councilwoman on July 1, 1994 in the 336 year history of this city. She brought a much needed perspective to that governing body.  A longtime community activist, she has been a consummate and consistent advocate for women, children, senior citizens, the disabled, working families and those in need. On July 1, 2006, she was again sworn in as Councilwoman at-Large.  She created history once again when she was elected as the first female president of the Newark Municipal Council.
