UNION, NJ – A Testimonial Resolution was presented at the most recent Township Committee meeting to Union resident Sally M. Straus for her ”involvement, hard work and dedication to the Township of Union.”
Union Mayor Michele Delisfort said Straus, is a lifelong resident of Union, is known as being tremendously involved in the Township after a very extensive corporate executive career in New York City. Delisfort said Straus chose to retire early from corporate life and “focus on community involvement and volunteerism”.
Delisfort said Straus is involved in a myriad of activities.
- Vice President of the Union Public Library Board of Trustees
- Former Aide to Mayor Anthony Terrezza
- Committee member for the 200th anniversary celebration for the Township of Union

“Sally is someone who is truly dedicated to the advancement of her community and makes sure that she is always there to lend a helping hand or show support,” said Delisfort.
Delisfort said Straus has a favorite saying, “If it happens in Union, I’m either in it, at it, or know about it.”
Accepting the resolution, Straus said, “this is an unexpected surprise and a wonderful tribute”. She attended the meeting under the pretense of presenting information about the Union Public Library.
“It is said that you can’t be all things to all people,” said Straus. “I believe our Union Public Library is an exception and is exceptional.” Straus outlined some of the programs and events available at the library.
“I am honored and thrilled” to accept the resolution, Straus said.
