Looking Forward to the Future

At the Township Council’s organizational meeting on New Year’s Day, Livingston’s residents, employees and elected officials gathered at the Senior/Community Center. Hundreds were appointed to dozens of township committees; Rudy Fernandez was sworn in as the year’s mayor; and Shawn Klein as deputy mayor. The two replaced Al Anthony, and Fernandez as 2019’s mayor and deputy mayor, respectively.

It was a genial two hour affair, with an air of familiarity and goodwill that started off 2020 on the right foot for those in attendance. As the Council members said in their speeches, Livingston appears to be set up well for the future. They detailed the accomplishments of 2019, while sharing the goals and plans for 2020.
