BRANCHBURG, NJ - Somerset County Sheriff Frank Provenzano has administered the oath of office to hundreds of law enforcement officers and politicians during his time in office, but there are some ceremonies that stand out more than others.

Such was the case Thursday night, Jan. 3 at Branchburg Township's annual reorganization meeting.

Provenzano presided at the swearing in of the township's new mayor, Anna Columbus, who happens to be his sister.

Columbus was reelected to a second term on the Township Committee in November, with her colleagues voting to appoint her mayor at the reorganization meeting.
