Councilwoman Patricia Walsh joins the Council in the seat vacated by Jack Molenaar. She was elected in November, 2018.
Councilman Jeff Banks assumed the Council seat held by Russ Huegel, who resigned in late December to become Borough Attorney. Under state law, Banks was chosen by the Council from three nominees selected by the Democratic Committee. Banks must run for election this year to remain in that seat.
Councilwoman Erin McElroy Barker was sworn in for her second term, surrounded by family. She was re-elected in November.
Did you know that, in addition to serving as our Mayor, Colleen Mahr is also the newest President of the New Jersey State League of Municipalities?
The League is a voluntary association created to help communities do a better job of self-governing through pooling information resources and brain power. In her role, Mayor Mahr works to lead municipalities to better self-governance and connecting officials across town and county lines for a more productive New Jersey.
Mayor Mahr is featured in the January issue of the organization's publication, NJ Municipalities, where she discusses her role as the President and also mentions her mayor duties in Fanwood. The magazine is available as a subscription-based publication for municipalities and professionals.
