TRENTON, NJ – The New Jersey League of Municipalities recognized the achievements of Clark Mayor Sal Bonaccorso by inducting him to the organization’s Elected Officials Hall of Fame during a ceremony held in the state capitol Wednesday morning.

“The town gave me the privilege to serve,” Bonaccorso said. “I appreciate all of their trust in me. The people of Clark are great people to represent over the last 20 years.”

The League of Municipalities is an association of New Jersey’s 560 mayors and over 13,000 elected and appointed officials of the member municipalities. According to the organization’s website, the 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.”

Bonaccorso, who previously served on the township council, began an unprecedented fifth term as the township’s mayor on Jan. 1, 2017.

“To be successful you need good people around you,” Bonaccorso said, recognizing the efforts of the township’s elected council members, administration, employees and citizens during his tenure. “I’ve been blessed to have a good team. Everyone around me has given me the strength to persevere and help make our good ideas happen.”

Bonaccorso traveled to Trenton with his family to accept the award.
