Mayors' & Elected Officials Hall of Fame

Recognizing Service

Induction into the Mayors' Hall of Fame or the Elected Officials' Hall of Fame recognizes municipal officials who have selflessly guided their communities through the good times and troubled times with little recognition of their sacrifice. This token of appreciation will shine a light on these pillars in our communities and hold them up as an example of civic pride for all citizens to emulate.

Elected Officials Hall of Fame

The New Jersey State League of Municipalities inaugurated the Elected Officials Hall of Fame during the Seventh Annual Mayors Legislative Day January 27, 1999 at the State House Annex in Trenton.

Mayors' Hall of Fame

The Mayors' Hall of Fame was rolled out on November 15, 1995, at the Mayors' Luncheon during the 80th Annual League Conference in Atlantic City. There are three recognition levels: Silver Level (10 Years), Gold Level (20 Years), and White Level (30 Years). Mayors who are currently serving and have served a total of 10, 20, or 30 years as mayor, are eligible for nomination by associates or for themselves. Mayors who rotate into office are eligible for this recognition.

The criteria includes:
• You must currently be serving as mayor.
• You must currently be serving in at least your 10th cumulative year as mayor for the Silver level
• You must currently be serving in at least your 20th cumulative year as mayor for the Gold level
• You must currently be serving in at least your 30th cumulative year as mayor for the White level
• You must not be a current member of the League’s Mayors Hall of Fame (this does not apply to Silver level mayors now eligible for the Gold level; or Gold who are eligible for White)
