The New Jersey State League of Municipalities inducted Mayor Michael Fressola into the Elected Officials Hall of Fame during the Twenty-First Annual Mayors Legislative Day Wednesday at the State House Annex in Trenton.
The honor is reserved for local municipal governing body members who, as of December 2012, served for more than twenty years in elected municipal office. Mayor Michael Fressola has served Manchester Township for twenty years.
The president of the State League of Municipalities, Mayor Janice S. Mironov of East Windsor Township, said, “The Elected Officials Hall of Fame recognizes these officials who have selflessly guided their communities through the good times and difficult times often with little recognition of their public service. This small token of appreciation focuses a light on their sacrifices over lengthy tenures, demonstrating how much they care and serving as excellent examples of civic pride for all citizens to emulate.”
There are currently 510 inductees in the Elected Officials Hall of Fame, which can be viewed at www.njslom.com
