RE: Reminder - 19TH ANNUAL ELECTED OFFICIALS HALL OF FAME
Dear Mayor and Governing Body Members,
In recognition of the many municipal governing body members who are selflessly serving for twenty or more years, the League of Municipalities is pleased to once again accept nominations for the Elected Officials Hall of Fame. www.njslom.org/hallelec_cover.html.
This special honor is reserved for those governing body members, active and retired, who have served twenty years in elected municipal office. As you know, these special elected officials have governed their municipalities for lengthy tenures, guiding their communities through the good times and troubled times, with little recognition.
The Elected Officials Hall of Fame 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.
In a special ceremony in February, 2017, during the Mayors Legislative Day at the State House, there will be a presentation to these special elected municipal officials. They will be inducted into the Elected Officials Hall of Fame and their picture will appear in the League magazine, New Jersey Municipalities.
If you know of any elected municipal officials, not currently in the Elected Officials Hall of Fame, who have served at least twenty years in elected municipal office, please use the attached form http://www.njslom.org/formslibrary/Hall-of-Fame-form.pdf to nominate them for this special recognition. The form may be copied if you want to make several nominations. Please mail the form(s) back to League office by December 1, 2016 so they may be included in the ceremony. Confirmations will be mailed to the nominees in January, 2017.
You may view a full list of all Hall of Fame inductees at the League Website www.njslom.org/hallfame.html. If you have any questions, contact the League’s Executive Director, Michael Darcy at extension 116.
Thank you for helping to identify these elected municipal officials for special recognition.
Very truly yours,
Joseph Tempesta, Jr.
President, League of Municipalities;
Mayor, West Caldwell Township
