Prior to his election to the Assembly, Biondi served on the Hillsborough Township Planning Board from 1986-1999, the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders from 1994-1997, and was mayor of Hillsborough Township from 1986-1993.
Biondi won re-election in 2011. Biondi and Jack Ciattarelli ran unopposed in the Republican Primary on June 7. They then defeated Marie Corfield and Joe Camarota in the November 8 general election.
District 16 was also significantly reshaped in 2011, moving its population center away from Somerset County. All of the Republican candidates (two incumbents and one challenger) are from the Somerset area. However, NJSpotlight notes that despite these changes and balanced partisan registration, the Democratic ticket is not very familiar to voters.
Running for re-election in the November 3, 2009 general election, Biondi received 45,036 votes (34%), defeating challengers Mark Petraske and Roberta Karpinecz. He was bracketed with Denise Coyle.
