KENILWORTH, NJ – Councilman Nicholas Mascaro stepped down from his position on the Kenilworth Borough Council at Wednesday night’s meeting.

Mascaro said that he decided not to run for re-election and thought it would be best to step down and let someone else experience his position.

“Tonight will be my last council meeting,” Mascaro said. “I want to thank the governing body. I admire how all of you are able to balance your home lives, personal lives and also sit up here and do your best for the people of this town.”

The rest of the council said they will miss Mascaro and wish him well.

“For a young man like yourself with a new family, it’s very hard,” Mayor Anthony DeLuca told Mascaro. “Thank you for your service. I hope to see you again. You care about this town and that’s the most important thing.”

Finally, Mascaro thanked the borough council, Kenilworth Fire Department, Kenilworth Police Department and Kenilworth Recreation Department for their support.

“I am and always have been a Kenilworth guy through and through,” Mascaro said. “Thank you for everything. I’ll miss it.”

According to DeLuca, there will be a special meeting on July 26 for the Borough Council to vote on a candidate elected by the Kenilworth Democratic Committee, because Mascaro ran for election as a member of the Democratic Party.
