At the 99th Annual New Jersey League of Municipalities Conference in Atlantic City, then League president Suzanne Walters and officials from throughout New Jersey honored the most recent inductees to the Mayors’ Hall of Fame.
The League established the Mayors Hall of Fame to recognize mayors who have served for over 10, 20 or 30 years. “Serving as mayor for decades is a commitment of time and energy over the long haul. These mayors have obviously made a long-term commitment as leaders to better their communities. They have had a chance to see their communities grow and change over the years and to work to make a difference” said League Executive Director Bill Dressel. “They deserve to be recognized.”
In 2014 for the first time, a new level was established, the White Level, for mayors currently serving more than 30 years in office as mayor.
The members of the 20th induction class of the Mayor’s Hall of Fame were honored during a special ceremony during the Mayors Box Luncheon on Wednesday November 19 in Atlantic City.
