Since then, he has gone on to serve as Deputy Executive Director of the New Jersey General Assembly Majority Office and joined the Northeastern Regional Council of Carpenters - a progressive union working for New Jersey’s union contractors.
In 2011, Troy held his first elected office position representing New Jersey’s Seventh Legislative District in the New Jersey General Assembly. He had more bills signed into law than any other legislator while serving his first term. He has championed rights for domestic violence victims, fought for small business owners, labor workers, Veterans, and for children’s education. Assemblyman Singleton was recognized as one of Burlington County’s Top 40 Under 40 in 2013, named the 2013 Legislator of the Year by New Jersey AMVETS and by the New Jersey ARC.

Assemblyman Singleton’s plethora of community outreach is an exemplification of why he is running for office - his drive to make his community better.
