VERONA - Veteran councilman Jay Sniatkowski announced he will not seek a fifth term on the Verona Town Council, after serving the township for 16 years as a councilman, mayor and deputy mayor.

"I am honored to have served our community for the past 16 years and grateful that our residents had the confidence in me to elect me to four terms," Sniatkowski stated.  "It is not a responsibility that I took lightly.  Each and every day, I worked to make our community a better place."

Sniatkowski said he is proud of the work he and the town council have accomplished during his tenure, noting he first ran on a platform of improving Verona's downtown area and increasing recreational opportunities, both of which he's seen come to fruition over the years.  He said he is confident that new candidates will bring new ideas that will continue to make Verona an outstanding township and community.

"When I ran in 2001, I promised to improve our downtown and increase recreational opportunities for all residents.  During the past 16 years, we have seen the addition of Hilltop Park and Kipp's Castle Park, as I was always committed to smart development while preserving green space," he added. " Verona is a great community and I am confident that Verona residents with new ideas will step up to fill the seat."
