SHORT HILLS, NJ – The Short Hills Association will be hosting a forum to include the four candidates vying for two seats on the Millburn Township Committee. The annual event hosted by the association includes the two incumbent members; mayor Ted Bourke and deputy mayor Ian Mount, and challengers Dianne Eglow and Sam Levy.

The forum provides the residents of Millburn Township to hear directly from the candidates in a debate-style format on current issues that concern residents. It is also an opportunity for residents to ask direct questions on any topic relevant to the governing of the municipality.

The evening will provide each candidate an opportunity to address the township outlining their qualifications, accomplishments and capabilities to lead and serve the residents for a three-year term.  The election of Township Committee members coincides with the national election on Nov. 8.
