MILLBURN, NJ – Residents of Township of Millburn came out to cast their votes in a hotly contested Township Committee race on Tuesday. Dianne Eglow and Samuel Levy emerged victorious with 4,434 votes and 4,388 respectively.

As each district results were tallied at Town Hall, it was apparent the community was voting for a change. "It has been an honor to serve the community for the last six years. I will remain an advocate for getting Complete Streets done in my time remaining and as a private citizen," said Mayor Ted Bourke "I thank all those who have supported Ian and I during our time and during the election. And we move on - instead of focusing on lowering our property taxes, I will focus on lowering my handicap."

The Complete Streets project was a principal issue during the campaign, particularly in the final days leading up to the election. Eglow and Levy called for a pause and review of the project while Ted Bourke and Ian Mount urged patience and looked to focus the voters on the value of the end result.

We have the finest business administrator, staff, police, fire department, DPW and administrative personnel, and I'm proud to have had the opportunity to work alongside them," said deputy mayor Ian Mount. "I'm grateful to all those who supported Ted and me - their dedication to our community is amazing. I look forward to completing my term productively, and to remaining active as a resident, parent and supporter of Millburn Township.."
