SPARTA, NJ – Councilwoman Molly Whilesmith was recognized for her service as the 2019 Sparta Township Mayor.  At the January 28 meeting current mayor Jerry Murphy gave Whilesmith a plaque, pin and paperweight from the township.

“I’m always amazed when there are ladies on town council,” Murphy said.  “They are usually doing double duty…at least until they have an empty nest.”

Whilesmith said, "It is a privilege to serve this township.  I am hoping that 2020 will inspire other like minded individuals to step up to serve this incredible community."
