“When we work together, we get a lot done and when we don’t, it’s just the opposite,” said Diehl regarding the relationship between the council and the administration.

Edison’s economic growth is his top priority as council president, claiming that the recession might be over, but it hasn’t caught up to New Jersey.

Also in a unanimous vote, Councilwoman Sapana Shah was sworn in for first time as Edison Township Council Vice President.

In her opening remarks as the Council Vice President, Shah kept remarks short wishing everyone a Happy New Year and she looks forward to working with everyone.

Council President Diehl recognized Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin’s attendance an reiterated that only working together not only includes the township administration but working together with the Middlesex County Freeholders and State Officials. 

The reorganization meeting was conducted without much fanfare since it was off year for elections in Edison with all seven members remaining.

Councilman Sudhanshu Prasad was absent from the first meeting of 2015.
