COMMITTEE COMMENTS:

Committeewoman Bader congratulated Art Daughtry and Deb Nielson and thanked Seth Davenport for swearing her in.  It was a true pleasure representing the Township for the past three years, and I look forward to representing you again and working with the Township Committee this year.  There are some people who deserve recognition - my two sons, Ian and Sean, and my husband. 

Bader thanked Dan Grant for attending this evening.  Five years ago I got a call – would you be my running mate?  I knew it was last minute.  I didn’t win, but Dan set the fire in my heart to represent Montville Township.  The following year, I ran a full campaign and won.

Committeewoman Nielson thanked everyone for coming out tonight.  I hope we can see the pews filled in March, April, and July.  I would like to thank Steve Moscone for serving as our Mayor.  He has 12 years of service.  He used one word often – “we.”  We are a team up here, and everything we do should be as a team.  I embrace that.  He is sort of humble, and he let us shine and say our peace. 

Nielson congratulated Art Daughtry.  We don’t always agree, but it is a democracy and that is what it is all about. 

Nielson congratulated Jean Bader on her re-election.  She also congratulated Rich Moore on the good, clean campaign he ran. 

Nielson welcomed the new Township Administrator.  I hear nothing but praise from the staff and the public.  I think he will serve us well.

Nielson thanked all of the dedicated volunteers.  Without them, we could not do our job.

Nielson stated Art Daughtry will talk later about our goals.  I did notice today in the newspaper that the Morris County Freeholders have ten goals.  One of them is shared services.  We are committed to that.  We have joint meetings with the Board of Education, the Planning Board, and the Economic Development Commission.  I am a strong advocate of open communication.  Happy New Year to all.  I am looking forward to 2007.

Committeeman Moscone thanked everyone very much.  We are blessed with a great group in Montville Township – the staff, department heads, and the Township Committee.  Thank you, I enjoyed the year as Mayor.  Next year is going to be a great year too.  We all do disagree, but it is ok because we stay with the issue.  Congratulations to Art Daughtry, Deb Nielson, and Jean Bader.

Committeeman Sandham congratulated Deb Nielson, Jean Bader, and Art Daughtry.  I also want to congratulate Rich Moore.  He does deserve to be up here sometime in the future.  Thank you to Steve Moscone, my family, Frank Bastone, and the department heads.  I want to thank my Montville family.  I want to thank the past Township Committee members who are here.  Having sat up here, it is not an easy job.  Thank you for what they have done in the past. 

Sandham stated he looks forward to this year with Deb Nielson as Deputy Mayor and Art Daughtry as Mayor.  I look forward to a great 2007.

Chairman Daughtry congratulated Jean Bader and Rich Moore for a great campaign.  Congratulations to Deb Nielson. 

Daughtry stated I am hoping this year we can demonstrate to all of our friends that this doesn’t have to be a full-time job – that it shouldn’t be.  We have strategic goals and objectives.  The key word for me this year is focus.  We have to stay focused on our key objectives.  I firmly believe we are on the right track.  The people up here keep us on track.

Daughtry stated we had a Charter Study Commission this year.  They decided not to change the form of government.  We have chosen to rotate the Mayor position yearly.  I hope in the future,  and there is no guarantee until votes are taken, that the Deputy Mayor becomes the Mayor the following  year.

Benediction – Reverend Charles Bigelow.  Reverend Bigelow also thanked the Township Committee for honoring and recognizing the Montville Reformed Church at their 250th Anniversary celebration on November 19. 

Meeting adjourned at 8:05 p.m.  Motion:  Bader.  Second:  Sandham.  All in favor.  Motion approved.

Respectfully submitted,

                                                           

Gertrude H. Atkinson, Township Clerk

Approved MTC 02-13-07
