Professional Appointments Remain the Same for 2013

For the second year in a row, Democratic Committeeman Sean Sharkey opposed the appointment of township attorney and labor counsel at Tuesday’s annual reorganization meeting

In 2013, professional appointments will remain the same for Lacey Township.

at Tuesday’s annual reorganization meeting. George Gilmore was reappointed as township attorney while the firm Citta, Holzapfel and Zabarsky is once again labor counsel.

“Gilmore is the head of our opposition,” Sharkey previously said. “We were elected for change, and we would still like to see some change in positions.”

Gilmore is chairman of the Republican Party of Ocean County and has served as the Lacey Township attorney since the mid-1980s.

Last year, Sharkey voted against the labor counsel appointment because township employee furloughs were not handled appropriately.

Township employees, with the exception of the police department, were served 22 furlough days in 2010, taking a 20 percent cut in their salaries and ultimately saving the township $450,000, which later had to be paid back after grievances were filed.

Township attorney and labor counsel were appointed by a vote of 3-1. Democratic Committeewoman Helen DelaCruz was absent. 

A part from professionals, many volunteers were appointed for various committees.

“Every name we read out today is really doing something to help the community in one way or another,” Committeeman Gary Quinn said on Tuesday. “That’s truly what makes the community the great town that it is.”

Below is a list of appointments made at the reorganization meeting. Continue to follow Lacey Patch for more on the meeting.

It's not that I think government will make everything better but I believe that they are their to create guidelines as perameters to stay within. The unfortunate thing in my opinion is that if you believe state and federal government cannot be reformed but yet you expect local to be able to, I think your wrong. When municipalities try to do the right thing and go against higher authority they are sued . Just look at the the national healthcare bill, if we go against it we will get sued, and the Feds have more money then we have access to at local levels. Thus, we will lose ad they will win . It has to change from top down
