Many changes from the new administration, Gardens lawsuit settled, Dow’s ego explodes.
We saw a new administration make the first significant changes in our town in over 25 years. When Rich DiFolco, Jason Jones and Lew Brown were sworn-in we knew change was coming. The first act of the year and probably their biggest regret was making Rich Dow the Mayor. Within a month he became IM THE MAYOR DOW and like him being mayor the rest is history.
There are more successes then failures. With new attorneys appointed by Town Council the biggest success story of the year is the Gardens lawsuit finally being settled and a solution finally in sight. A new township manager was hired and municipal recreation programs have significantly improved. A couple police officers have been hired to help battle the crime rate and word is more are on the way.
