On January 12th, Council and I met via Zoom for their first Work Session of 2021. Many of us are still getting used to our new roles, but it was amazing to see how everyone rose to the occasion as we faced new and challenging decisions for our town and fellow residents. I am so proud to be fortunate enough to work alongside such dedicated people.
I am especially proud to announce that Council made history last night, appointing the FIRST Black Councilman ever in Delran, Marlowe Smith; who will be filling the seat in Ward 3 recently vacated by Mike Mormando.
It was an honor for me to swear in Mr. Smith that night on such a momentous occasion. The members of Council and I have known Councilman Smith for years and felt he was a distinguished choice for Town Council. He immediately joined in the discussion last night, bringing his experience and commitment to the table. You can read more about Councilman Marlowe Smith by clicking here.
