CHATHAM, NJ - John Holman gave up his seat on the Borough of Chatham Council, but he still took home a chair after he attended his final meeting on Monday night.

Departing council members Alida Kass and Holman were each honored with resolutions for exemplary service to the council and received a personalized "captain's chair" as an outgoing gift. According to Chatham Borough Mayor Bruce Harris, the chairs were the old ones used by previous council members.

Holman was praised for his six years of service to the council, which included his participation as a council liaison on numerous committees, including the Pilgrim Pipeline Advisory Committee.

Kass, who also served as a liaison on a long list of committees, joined the council in November of 2013 to fill the unexpired term of Len Resto, who had accepted a job out of state. 

Kass and Holman decided not to run for re-election and their seats will be filled by Resto, who has returned to Chatham, and Peter Hoffman. Resto and Hoffman won their Republican Primary elections in June and ran unopposed in November.
