LIVINGSTON, NJ — Livingston’s new Mayor, Al Anthony, new Deputy Mayor Shawn Klein, and Township Council members were sworn in at the Livingston Senior Community Center in front of a full house of residents, township employees and political colleagues. Friends, family, former Livingston Mayors, former council members and dozens of township employees and volunteers congratulated and thanked one another as they shared prior successes as well as future hopes and plans for Livingston.

The Mayor and Members of the Township Council thanked all those appointed and recognize the continuing service of the current members of several statutory boards and committees, including the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Adjustment and other organizations. The mayor and members of the council also hosted a reception immediately following the meeting, free and open to the public.

"I'm looking forward to pushing good ideas to the top of the agenda this year,” said newly appointed Mayor Anthony. “I'd like to make 2016 a year to get things done."

Prior mayor Michael Silverman nominated Al Anthony to be the new mayor and councilman Ed Meinhardt seconded the nomination.

“It's going to be an exciting and busy year and I think that Al is going to do a great job,” said new Deputy Mayor Shawn Klein.

With his first year under his belt, Klein said he is “gung-ho” on leading a committee that will push the project for a new Livingston Township mobile application forward. In his opinion, an all-town app will be “where the rubber meets the road in terms of good government” and is one of the proposed projects for 2016 that will be a game-changer for how citizens interact with the town.

Other important issues that councilmen touched upon included continuing the town’s green initiatives (like business recycling and decreasing plastic bag use), moving forward with the Department of Public Works, increasing the pricing on birth certificates, managing the large issues with the town’s water and sewer infrastructure and being extremely careful with debt burden.

An annual, well-attended reception followed an organizational meeting that appointed the new mayor and deputy mayor as well as Assistant Township Attorney Michael Berliner, Municipal Public Defender Marc D. Garfinkle, Assistant Municipal Prosecutors and Municipal Court Defenders. Official appointments were also made for several town organizations and committees, including but not limited to the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Adjustment, the Open Space Trust Committee, the Livingston Community Partnership Management Corporation, the Township Appearance Committee and the Arts Council of Livingston.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.

 

Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
