Klein Named Mayor, Meinhardt Deputy Mayor At Township Council’s Organizational Meeting

As is tradition in town, the Livingston Township Council held its annual organizational meeting on the morning of New Year ‘s Day. The meeting, typically held at the Senior/Community Center, was instead held virtually this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Still, hundreds of volunteers were appointed to the township’s various committees and boards, the 2020 mayor and deputy mayor were selected, and a few surprise guests appeared during the meeting due in part to its being held remotely. There were a few minor technical difficulties during the roughly 90 minute proceedings, but the virtual ceremony allowed more people to view the meeting and do so safely from their homes. Shawn Klein was unanimously voted by the Council as the next mayor, and Ed Meinhardt was unanimously selected as deputy mayor. Both previously held those positions in 2017. Rudy Fernandez concluded his third term serving as mayor. He will continue in his role as a Council member and was thanked by the rest of the Council for being “the perfect mayor in the most difficult year.”
