Mark Gyorfy believes Morris Township is ready for new leadership and has the background to bring about positive change to our community. He was born and raised in the Township, has been a volunteer firefighter here for over a decade, and is a graduate of Morristown High School. He later studied government and counterterrorism at the University of Maryland-College Park.
Mark gained his public service background advising a New Jersey member of Congress on homeland security, veterans’ affairs, and financial services issues in Washington DC. He is proud of his fight to bring federal dollars to New Jersey to support first responders and of his advocacy for our veterans. Mark believes his experience legislating and communicating with constituents will provide much-needed institutional knowledge to help the Township Committee govern our town effectively.
Mark currently works in the financial services industry and rides NJ Transit each day to work. He enjoys spending his free time with his family and friends, tending his plot at Morris Township’s community garden, and playing softball for his firehouse’s team. He is a member of Hillside Hose Company No. 1 and Assumption Parish. You will often find him at the firehouse, the YMCA, or cooking with his high school sweetheart.
