NEWTON, NJ— Town of Newton and its staff will say goodbye to Linda Ann Roth, on June 9.
Roth has been Newton’s Certified Tax Collector for the past 14 years having started with Newton in 2003.
“In 2003, I got a call from Newton to be their Deputy Tax Collector,” said Roth. “From there I received my Tax Collector Certification from Rutgers in 2005 and became Newton’s Certified Tax Collector.”
Roth is a native of Sussex County. She currently lives with her husband Ed, 21-year-old daughter, Rebecca and cocker spaniel Navin in Fredon Township, where they have resided for the past 27 years.
She enjoys reading, cooking and spending time with her family and friends, some of which she has formed personal relationships with right here in Newton through her job.
“I’m going to miss interacting with the residents of Newton on a daily basis. There are many people that I have formed personal relationships with that I enjoy talking to when they come in the office, and so I’ll miss seeing and talking to them,” said Roth.
According to Roth, Newton has helped her grow as a Certified Tax Collector and provided her with opportunities to further her education and certifications in her field. “I am grateful for the opportunities that gave me.”
She will be leaving to pursue and advance her professional career in the Township of Randolph as the Tax Collector, Water and Sewer Collector and Treasurer.
“Randolph is much larger than what I am used to, so I am looking forward to the challenges that come with a larger municipality. I felt like it was time for a change,” said Roth.
